This is just such an exciting place and quite off the beaten track. It is just a gorgeous place and so photographic. Definitely a must see on any visit to Cappadocia. We thought that this was one of the nicest places that we had visited...More

Kapadokya -- what to say. One goes back in history nearly 1500 years. A rugged landscape yet beautiful. Stayed at Elica Caves and a real feel of a stay in Cave with all modern amenities. Tagged along a Balloon ride and wow it was exhilarating....More

I had heard that the castle was considered dangerous by some, but after the renovations a few years ago it has been made much safer to ascend. The climb isn't too bad, and the views at the top are stunning. Definitely recommend.

Apart from Goreme, here people still lives. You can see every day life going slowly and miting with tourists from all over the world. I preferd to stay here in hotel Dreams Cave

I'm afraid I didn't find Ortahisar to be that interesting. Unfortunately, our ballon ride got cancelled and we felt there wasn't much else to do there as the weather was extremely hot. The only highlight was Cemal's ranch - the horseback ride through the wild...More

Believed to be the last Castle. From Panoramic point, we can see the Castle very far with Turkey flag. When we arrived to Pigeon Valley, the view was closer. Few minutes for photos only

Not on the route of local travel agencies so if you have time and a vehicle go and take a look at the breathtaking view. Have a coffee afterwards and try to cool down feeling the breeze.
