Create an itinerary including Zemi Valley
Wander through Zemi Valley among naturally formed rock pillars, caves, and fairy chimneys. The walk along the southern edge of the valley between Goreme and an open-air museum provides panoramic views over the countryside. See houses, storerooms, pigeon niches, and churches carved into the rock along the way. Look out for a little rock-hewn chapel with ceiling paintings. Poplar trees cast shade over the trails, but be sure to wear hiking boots and sunscreen, and carry a bottle of water. In one steep area you'll have to hold onto a rope. Using our online itinerary creator, Goreme attractions like Zemi Valley can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The fairy chimneys are impressive to see when they occur in large numbers. They range from thin to thick but essentially they all look the same.
