I visited this Uchisar Castle around 17,00 to see the panorama of Uchisar and waited the sunset. The castle looked great in the sunset.

Quite a hike but well worth the history and the views. Amazing sights well worth the trip. Do it if you have the extra time.

Lovely place to climb up and view the sunset. On the first day, we reached after closing time, so spent our time sitting below the castle. We came again the next day and climbed to the top. It is not too difficult, there are well laid out stairs and the views are breathtaking.

We reached Uchisar from Goreme, with a rented buggy. It's on the Nevsehir-Goreme road, about 5-6 km from Goreme. From the top of the castle, you cand see Mount Erciyes in the distance. The panorama of the surrounding area is lovely. We really enjoyed talking a walk/climb between the rooms hollowed into the rocks and connected by tunnels or stairs.... More

we saw the Uchisar Castle and the surrounding ancient houses; the scenery is beautiful; the ancient houses are hollowed out into the rocks and form amazing shapes.
