You see the former cave houses where the walls are now carved to make pigeon roosts. And they attract the pigeons so they can collect the dung for fertilizer. The orchards, gardens and low vine grapes are the ultimate beneficiaries. Makes you think a bit about how easy we have it when we spend the money even to fertilize and... More

Not too far from Goreme just about 10 minutes drive. A really great spot to take photos. See the hot air balloons pass by.

We didn't plan this part of the trip at all, the taxi driver decided we needed to see this place at all costs and we went with the flow only to discover a a little piece of paradise! If you're in the area and do not stop for even a few moments to just take in the valley, and the... More

We were staying at the Argos which is located right on the rim of the Valley there in Uchisar. To our delight, a parade of 40-50 colorful hot air balloons would float down the valley each morning. Spectacular sight right from our terrace!! The cliffs of the valley change color throughout the day as the sun passes over and settles... More

I would highly recommend going for lunch and taking a few photo shots. Great organisation and what a magical place. I would definitely go back and do it again. The views and the formation of the rocks are incredible to see. It is a must have experience! People are very nice - it’s a shame that the tourist industry is... More
