Full description

After your guide’s introduction to Cappadocia at the Goreme panoramic viewpoint, you will drive 1 hour to discover the most spectacular gorge in Turkey, Ihlara. Take a peaceful 6km hike through the Ihlara Valley where you will see the Melendiz River. Pass Byzantine rock chapels decorated with frescoes and have lunch in a riverside restaurant in the Belisirma village.

After lunch, you will see the biggest rock-cut monastery of Cappadocia, Selime Monastery and Cathedral. Then, head underground where the magnificent city of Derinkuyu lies.
