municipality in Nevşehir Province, Turkey
Uçhisar is a town in Cappadocia.
From the heights of the Uçhisar citadel, you have a magnificent and unrivaled view of the whole region.
- Uçhisar Castle / Landlord's Castle (Uçhisar Kalesi) (The big rock on top of the hill in Uçhisar). The view from the top of this massive rock with a number of rooms carved into it is well worth the price of admission. The path to the top is strenuous but short, mostly stairs and relatively safe. 6 TL.
- There are also many similar hand carved rooms and tunnels you can explore in the nearby Pigeon valley. Fewer stairs, perhaps less safe.
- Hike the Güvercinlik (Pigeon) Valley.
