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.
