Ihlara Valley, Cappadocia Temporarily Out of Bounds

Jump to last reply

The largest national daily, Hurriyet reported today that Ihlara Valley is closed off to protect hikers and sightseers from falling rocks. The authorities have not yet given any dates for the completion of the protective measures.

It was not clear whether this was a temporary situation due to recent heavy rains and snowfall which should disappear when the weather improves or whether it is a result of undermining of some of the cliffs, extensive erosion, or a newly discovered risk of landslides which may require longer to handle.

But, do not let this put you off. There are still many other places to visit in Cappadocia where you can see the names of previous Fodors posters like Adu and Cold carved in gold letters, Veni-Vidi, half an inch high. (you really have to search for them very carefully).
