Uchi in Turkish mean high and sar means castle.
An impressive 60-meter-high castle carved in a mountain, which is even visible from Göreme. When I went there, inside the castle was closed due to maintenance. But even from outside one can admire this amazing historical site and its natural surrounding. I see some people complain about a not-so-good view from the top of the castle, but this is not a viewing tower, rather a historical and natural landmark. Totally recommend it! Get a quick taxi from Goreme center then you will arrive here :) #nationalpark #urbanexplorer
The Uchisar Fortress is one of Goreme's commanding heights. It is a spectacular fortress on a 60-meter-high rock.
The top of the fortress is very smooth and can prevent animals or enemies from climbing. Below you can see the bodies of animals that have died because of climbing.
However. This place has been occupied by the pigeons of the sky, it is said that I have to wait for more!
