CAPPADOCIA HIKING TOURS

Cappadocia is famous for magnificent valleys and unique formations shaped by the eruptions of three volcanoes; Mount Erciyes (3,917m), Mount Hasan (3,263m) and Mount Melendiz (2,963m). These valleys were used to hide the first churches of Cappadocia carved into fairy chimneys and caves. Our Hiking tours cover these incredible valleys from spectacular top to wondrous bottom.

Turkish Heritage Travel organizes private hiking tours with varying difficulty levels. You can get further information about the valleys below or we can tailor-make your itinerary for you. Email us for more information and to book your tour.

ROSE and RED VALLEYS (2 - 4 HOURS)

Rose Valley is a large valley located between Goreme and Cavusin villages, and it is divided into many smaller valleys: Gulludere, Kizilcukur, Meskendir and Zindanonu valleys. This beautiful valley gets its name from the rose-colored rock that varies in hue and intensity depending on time of day, season and weather conditions. During the hike we will visit several cave churches, cave houses and cave tunnels. Rose Valley has paths for easy, medium and difficult levels. The most common path in the valley takes around 2 hours (3.5 km).


IHLARA VALLEY (2 - 6 HOURS)

The stunning & lush Ihlara Valley boasts the deepest gorge in Asia Minor. Once the home of monks who instructed Christianity in cave churches – with most of the churches decorated inside with frescoes. The main difference between Ihlara and the other Cappadocian valleys is the Melendiz River which runs from the bottom of the valley in the village of Ihlara and paints the gorge beautiful shades of blue and green.

The total length of the valley is 14 km, and there are three different walking tours available for Ilhara valley.

  • 3.5 km hike. Starting at the main gate and walking until Belisirma Village.
  • 7 km hike. Starting at the beginning of the valley and walking until Belisirma Village.
  • 14 km hike. Starting from the beginning of the valley and walking along the river until Selime Monastery.
