Ihlara Valley (Ihlara Vadisi) Tours

star-4.5
25 reviews
Ihlara Valley (Ihlara Vadisi)
Cappadocia’s Grand Canyon, the 328 ft (100 m) deep Ihlara Valley (Ihlara Vadisi) was formed by the Melendiz River thousands of years ago.
 
Around 4,000 people lived in the valley and there were 80 churches carved into the cliff faces, 12 of which can be visited today. These days the valley is home to one of the most popular hiking trails in Cappadocia with 26 bends along an 8 mile (14km) route that passes vineyards and pistacio trees.
 
The valley begins at the village of Ihlara and ends at Selime Monastery in the village of Selime, but there are two other entrances depending on how far you are willing to hike. Around 2.8 miles (4 km) into the valley is the most popular entry point with 300 steps down to the valley floor. Or you can drive to the village of Belisirma in the middle of the valley. The best section for seeing churches is between Ihlara and Belisirma.
Address: Cappadocia, Turkey
Hours: Apr–Oct: 8am - 7pm; Nov–Mar: 8:30am - 5pm

Cappadocia Dream - 2 Days Cappadocia Travel with Balloon Ride from/to Istanbul

Cappadocia Dream - 2 Days Cappadocia Travel with Balloon Ride from/to Istanbul

star-5
Although many cross-country tours in Turkey only allocate a day to Cappadocia’s preternatural landscape and innovative architecture, most travelers find that a two-day tour strikes the right balance between seeing the region’s highlights and sacrificing time elsewhere in the country. See all of the highlights of Cappadocia comfortably during this two-day tour departing from Istanbul. Don’t risk running out of time to see all of the region’s unique natural heritage; instead, make sure you get to experience all of Cappadocia’s surreal landscapes, its cave churches, and the underground city.
