We walk here regularly at different times of year. Start early in the day to avoid the crowds and enjoy the peacefulness and wildlife. I would only say to avoid the hottest months and to carry plenty of water in the summer.
visited here on a guided tour and although we were told of the many churches and monasteries we actually did not see that many in relation to other areas, nor were they as impressive. that being said the valley is beautiful and a very nice...More
This is a must visit valley in Cappadocia region. It is quite far if you are staying Goreme or nearby areas. It is better to take a guided tour for the valley as they arrange for the guide, food, transfers etc.
Firstly we did not plan to visit it, but after we heard lot of positive reviews we decide to come here after Derinkuyu yeralti sehri. Excellent views, excellent place for walking, but you must be fit enough to go up and down by stears
Ilhara Valley is a wonderful place for a walk. Just come with your car to Ilhara, park it peacefully in the bottom of the valley. Do not NOT proceed to the second parking, which is preferred by buses and organised tours. In the beginning you'll...More
I and my partner visited Ihlara Valey as a part of a one night stay Cappadocia trip from Ankara. Easy 350 steps lead you to natural beauty of Ihlara Valey and a river running along which hits you already walking down the steps.
The valley is full of steps and uneven path, lined with plants. The stream and small caves added colour to the whole experience of covering the 3.5km walk in the valley. A good pair of walking shoes or trekking shoes is recommended. I would also...More
We went there with Green Tour. The guide “ Ufuq Jan” is a wonderful young man who has been great. Ilhara valley is a nice natural place where you can enjoy the nature. Track (4 kms) along flowing river was refreshing. My boys were happy...More

Vipada .... I think not, because public transport is not available in Cappadocia region as such. You however can get a Taxi 🚕. Normally as part of any tour you’ll be able to do 4 Kms of patch only. If you want to do the complete track of Ilhara valley you’ll have to do it at your own. But for safety reasons I would suggest you to have some group of friends or other interested trackers. Best of luck
