Know More about this tour
After Derinkuyu explore Ihlara valley and Melendiz river. Ihlara valley is a 14 km long gorge made of the same soft volcanic rock found throughout the Cappadocia. It was formed thousands of years ago because of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and erosion. Ihlara Valley was one of the first areas settled by early Christians and there are hundreds of churches carved into the walls of gorge. Indescribable gorgeousness, pure nature and historical significance of the canyon make it one of the most popular destinations for trekking in Cappadocia. This tour includes 4 km hiking through the Ihlara Valley along the Melendiz river. Walk through the vineyards and pistachio trees, enjoy relaxing sounds of flowing water and all the way observe the rich fauna of an area (butterflies, frogs, lizards, birds, etc.). After hiking be ready for a delicious lunch at a restaurant over Melendiz river. Enjoy traditional Turkish foods cooked by the locals.
