Turkey 2015

A very diverse trip combining a bit of the Mediterranean, a lot of Cappadocia and a dash to the Armenian border for the ruins of Ani.

We made our way back to Istanbul along the shores of the Black Sea with a few stops inland.

Göreme to Uçhisar: Love, Pigeon and Zemi valleys

 

(vero;2020-May-20)

The valleys linking Göreme and Uçhisar are very rewarding and offer many hiking trails quite easy to follow. Vero has a soft spot for the Zemi valley although it is not so spectacular as the other two. But it is not so much frequented and its many old abandoned orchards make for a peaceful and tranquil scenery. See the map showing the area between Göreme and Uçhisar below the photo gallery for planning purposes.
