"Uchisar Castle" Goreme Things to Do Tip by June.b

Goreme Things to Do: 251 reviews and 622 photos

After several panoramic stops and probably more than 3 kilometers walk I reached the blue sign that says Uchisar along the highway with a view of the rock castle on top of a hill.

So few more hike up and I'll be up there. I walked the more strenous part of the hike -- up passing along hotels layered on the hill and the view of the landscape below is getting more exciting on every step up. During that day I never saw anyone doing it on foot, all the people are on cars or big tourist buses. But really it wasn't that hard to do it on foot.

I reached the top of the town and the castle was right there in front near a mosque.

I paid TL5 for the entrance leading to the very top of the castle. There are stairs going up so it's accessible upto where the Turkish flag is. The 360 degree view up the castle is short of amazing.

Next tip please........(click here) Climbing the top of Uchisar Castle.
