Nevsehir Ili Off The Beaten Path

  • Taskinpasa, Sahinefendi and Guzel Oz...

    Three off the beaten path villages for sure. I spend more time in Taskinpasa because I wanted to see the medrese(school in arab), and the old mosque that dates back to the Seljuk period. There were some old stones inside the mosque, probably one of them a sarcophagus but I couldn’t find any info about them and there was nobody there to ask....

  • Where's the arc?

    Reputed as being the final resting place of the Arc, as in Noah's Arc, Olympys is visible from nearly the entire region, but few are willing to make the drive.If you do, the temperatures will drop as you climb and you can have a light lunch on a high plateau and play in the snow fields.There have been many expeditions into the mountain areas in...

  • Cemil village and Keslik monastery

    One day I decided to visit some old greek villages, Cemil (pic 1)was my first stop at the SE part of Cappadocia on my way to Soganli valley. Cemil was inhabitants by Christian families. The old church (pic 2)looks nice by distance but its almost destroyed inside. I liked the narrow streets and the locals that came out to say goodmorning. There is a...

  • Guzelyurt underground city

    As I said before, one of the two big cities (Kaymakli or Derinkuyu) is enough for the visitor to have a good view of what was an underground city. But if you want some more there are about 30 other underground cities in the area and most of them don’t have visitors at all. The one at Guzelyurt is small comparing to the famous ones with nothing...

  • Nar lake and Damsa lake

    If you have some more time and a private car it will be nice to see some other nice natural sites around like lakes! Nar Gol(Pomegranate lake) is a beautiful one, 50km SW of Nevsehir, close to Derinkuyu underground city on the road to Ihlara valley. We were tempted to swim but you cant swim here or find any fish inside because of huge amount of...

  • watch the Göreme sunset with a glass of...

    Go to a winery -there are a lot around the Cappadocian villages- and buy a bottle of wine, you can have some wine tests first and then chose the one that pleases your taste.In Göreme there is a spot up to the hill where you can watch the sunset and take some photos of the scenery around, the wine just completes the scene.

  • Visit Hacibektas while in Cappadocia

    A Cappadocia-visit should also include a visit in the town of Hacibektas. The town is located nearly 1 hour's drive from Nevsehir. You take a local minibus or midibus from Nevsehir. By travelling northwards via the town of Gulsehir you arrive in Hacibektas.Approximately one fourth of the people in Turkey belong to Alawi-Islam and Haci Bektas Veli...

  • An oasis

    The Cappadocia lanscape is quite barren. It looks like a desert. But, if you look more carefully, you will see more. Like this beautiful gorge we hit by mistake, visiting a church carved in the rock nearby. Down there we found a river, plenty of animals and pistachio bushes...

  • Take a break from natural sights...

    Take some time off from the Cappadocia`s natural wonders to see the local architecture. The normal houses are simple - some straightforwardly poor - have their own typical characteristics and fascination too. Also take some time to talk to the people... most speak very little or no English, but they are incredibly friendly and welcoming

  • enjoy the mountains... not only the...

    Cappadocia is not only rocks... it's mountains, too... or better: so is the landscape when approaching Cappadocia from Ankara. I went in the winter, so it means there are smaller crowds of tourists and colder weather (snow included). Ok it`s a bit cold but the landscapes are even more spectacular. Mountains like thse, which I believe are the Taurus...

  • Agzikarahan

    This old karavanderay was a resting point in the ancient camel routes through Anatolia. Is a huge cuadrangular building with a courtyard in side. In the middle of the patio you can see the little mosque where the travelers used to pray.
