Ihlara Valley Hike / Cappadocia, Turkey

Image

The 10 mile walk through this valley takes you past endless cave churches — where monks used to secretly practice Christianity — that you can hike up into and appreciate the remnants of Byzantine-era frescoes. There are other, shorter valley walks in the Cappadocia region, but this one ups the natural beauty factor with a river.
