“Do not miss it”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

This area is another large area of homes and places to worship of the ancients. It was facinating. Be prepared to walk and climb.

“Lush Valley, impressive rocks”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

One of the great hiking tours from Göreme to Uchisar. The valley is lush with fruit trees, wine and greens, contrasting impressively with the mountain wasteland and wonderful rock scultpures. It's one of the wilder vallies in the area. Bus tourists don't come here. You will have your peace an quiet while enjoying the nature. A hint: If you walk from Göreme to Uchisar (valley upwards), there will be a cross-way at some point. Make sure to follow the trail to your right! The one on the left leads to nowhere. It takes 10 minutes until you will recover that, though.

“nice place”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

if you go walking from the goreme bus stop towards the goreme open air museum [1.5 kms] this place comes on the way. there is a board of zemi vadisi on the right side of the road. you can walk inside, explore the place, take good pictures of the fairy chimneys and also have juice and dry fruits in the small shops run by locals.

“Small town - nice hammam”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Goreme, in Capadochia, is small. If you keep your eyes peeled, you can see locals harvesting and sorting on the side of the roads. It is obvious that they are working to upgrade this area. The Hammam is not fancy, but one of the best I visited.

“Very arduous”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

It would be great if Cappadocia had a reliable trekking guidebook. Alas it does not, and this trail proved very arduous with little reward. There are muddy tunnels to pass through, slick and steep rock faces to climb, and a few places where you have to scramble over vertical rocks with little or nothing to grab onto. Many times I wished I had brought my trekking poles. Unless you are an experienced and strong hiker, I recommend finding another trail that will reward the effort. The scenery on this one is less impressive than many others, though in late August there was a large variety of ripe fruit along the way including apples, quinces, grapes, and plums.
