One of the stopping places to enjoy the beautiful scenery, the carved stone hill, with the many pigeons flying around. We can also buy food to be given to the pigeon.

More of the wonderful views in the area, with a village in the distance, and large groups of pigeons performing intricate flights into the valley. Look for the little holes where the pigeons have built houses in the caves. The Evil Eye Tree is another...More

If you make the trip to Uchisar castle then finish it off with a walk along Pigeon Valley, a short walk away. Pigeon valley was green and fertile with easy walking along the valley bottom with the flowing magical rock formations all along its length....More

When we went there it was drizzling . It was a beautiful view, although packed you could walk down look at the pigeon caves or just get a beautiful view from the top.

Rug up, take plenty of fluids plus good hiking boots and then enjoy the walk. From Goreme it is a 3 or 4 hour trek.
