Mushroom shaped natural rocks where humans made it’s a habitat. Amazing view from the valley specially at evening. Rides available in jeep and all terrain scooters

Beautiful valley! From the principal parking lot ( 25 TL for a car) you can see the valley from it’s border. 360 degrees view is stunning but you can’t get down to the valley. We just passed by to see the view point then drove down to the entrance of love valley hiking trail at other side ( near cross section to Göreme). The trail is lovely, pretty easy and quiet. It took us only 1 hour to complete.

The history of Love Valley dates back to at least Roman times. There goes a legend that there once was two dynasties living in the same village. A fight broke out between the two dynasties, which resulted in the village effectively being split. One day, two villagers complained about the situation which resulted in the recruitment of two people from opposing sides. The two recruited soldiers fell in love with each other as soon as they saw each other. The feuding villagers, having had knowledge of this, tried their best to separate the two but failed. After they struggled to separate the two, the villagers decided to get them married. Time passed, the couple had a child, However the situation wasn't enough to reconcile the opposing families. Finally, they killed the boy. The girl couldn't stand her husband's death and later committed suicide. It is said that after the death of the two lovers, God rained stones to punish the feuding villagers. These stones are to kill anyone who opposes the reunion of youth.

My husband and I did a hike through Love Valley which was incredible! Lots of shade and only a short slightly difficult climb, the rest was fairly flat and easy with lots of picturesque spots. We also did an ATV tour that stopped at the lookout and we could see the whole valley, very impressive as well. A must see if you are in the area.

Starting from Pigeon valley, all the way up to Uchisar, cross over the road to Honey Valley, White Valley then Love Valley. But overall love valley stood up amount the other valley as can see from picture. Something unique and is easy to identify. I would really recommend anyone stay at Goreme or Uchisar, please spent some time walk through and feel the beauty nature. Is really walkable, because there is sign and path which is there. Not afraid lost in direction. We took almost 5hrs to discover this 4 valley. All along the side you may see apple, grape, small river stream. Always depends on the seasons. During winter we start walk from 12pm, is good to hike.

Fab place to hike to from Göreme, but do not take the walking route that Google Maps suggests; not unless you want to add an unnecessary extra 30-40 minutes each way just to end up in a car park!

To be fair, once you’ve reached the car park you do get to see the panoramic views of Love Valley, but you are not able to reach the valley via the car park. Instead you have to retrace your steps back down the main road and then turn off up a dirt track when you see the sign for Baglidere Vadisi.

Highly recommend that you also wear shoes suitable for hiking, as I saw several people wearing trainers who were precariously sliding down the paths! It was quite amusing to watch, but it could have resulted in a nasty accident.

Seeing the rock formation in person is a magical experience. It's truly magical, and I urge everyone to witness it at least once in their lives.

Hot air ballon is a must.

I wasn't that keen on doing this activity but other tourists were raving about so much that we decided to do it.

I'd say this is probably the best area to do a hot air ballon as they are hundreds in the air at the same time. It make it even more special. And of course you can appreciate the scenery even more from high up, Love Valley and other fairy chimneys and nearby mountains.

The landing is a bit rough. They don't warn you that much about that...they only show you what position you shpuld adopt for landing. So it's good to know.

Pretty awesome place! Can't say that I ve seen anything like this anywhere else in the world.
Gotta appreciate the humor of those who named it 😆🤣😂
We got caught in the rainstorm but it passed quickly and left the valley for us to have to ourselves for a while... it felt so much like walk in Eden's Garden

This hike was AWESOME. I had such a great time looking at the natural beauty of the land and the grape vines scattered about the land.

If you want to avoid the busloads of people, do the hike.

A valley you must see in this area. There is normally an entry fee, but we went with the ATV Tour, so we did not have to pay anything. I recommend visiting the valleys with the ATV Tours to make it more interesting.

Lovely hike , make sure you follow a map - it is easy to get lost here. Use non slippery shoes. Lots of beautiful views - best to hike early morning or evening to avoid heat

Ignore my pictures below as the camera didn't capture the true essence essence and beauty of the wonderful view of Love Valley's vast rock formation that you're about to see. The hike is in under an hour and the trek is easy.
A very good place to just marvel at nature and contemplating your life choices.

Spectacular hike! Don't miss the trek through the valley bottom. The suggestive rock formations are... noteworthy, to say the least, and the swooping, colour-stratified rock walls give the landscape a sense of flow and movement.

The entire trek takes between 45 minutes to an hour.

I did not go to the overlook. I entered down below and hiked in the valley. It's an easy hike and the chimneys are striking. It's really rather peaceful and so many less tourists than most of the other places.

Excellent place to see the balloons take off and land. Got there around 5am, parked and walked with the balloons. It gets very busy but it was not a problem.

Great place to watch the balloons take off as they tour the canyon.

Best to go right at sunrise.

Superb, unique place. I have never seen anything like this before. The volcanic eruption layers and the colours, structures caused by erosion are something out of the world. Our guide from the red tour was very good and he described everything perfectly. There was also a photo point and some food stalls including a Turkish Ice Cream stall.

Rating this place is like rating nature itself, impossible. Stunning view, is not quite though, at least now in Sept. when I was there the place was packed with tourists, totally normal for a super theistic place. There are also small tents where they sell souvenirs, juices and icecream

Very nice to hike through, good shoes recommended as the path is steep and slippery sometimes.
