Hotels in Ihlara Region
|Ihlara Village||A biker in the Ihlara Valley|
Only one hour drive from the major towns of the Cappadocia lies this gorge along the Melendiz river. Spectacular views of the gorge can be seen before descent. The gorge is about 16 kilometers long. It is possible to walk a small part of it without getting your feet wet. There are many churches carved in the rocks along the gorge. Beautiful frescoes can be seen in the churches.
At the end of the valley stands the village of Ihlara. Shades of the trees adds to the splendor of the valley especially in the summer heat.
