Cappadocia is famous with her valleys shaped by eruptions of three volcanoes; Mt. Erciyes (3,917 mt.), Mt. Hasan (3,263 mt.) and Mt. Melendiz (2,963 mt.). These valleys are used the hide the first churches of Cappadocia which were carved into fairy chimneys. Hiking tours in Cappadocia mainly go from top and bottom of these valleys.
Most popular trails are as below:
Rose and Red Valleys (2 – 4 HOURS): Rose Valley is a large area located between Goreme and Cavusin, and it is divided into many small valleys. It covers the valleys of Gulludere, Kizilcukur, Meskendir and Zindanonu. There are some cave churches, cave tunnels, cave houses in the valley which are visited during the hike. Rose Valley has paths for easy, medium and difficult levels. The most common path in the valley takes around 2 hours for 3,5 km.
Ihlara Valley (2 – 6 HOURS): Ihlara is the deepest gorge of Asia Minor, where monks used to live and instruct Christanity in cave churches. Most of the churches here, are decorated with frescoes. The main difference of Ihlara from the other Cappadocian valleys is the Melendiz river which runs from the bottom of the valley and paints it to blue and green.
