People dig small hole into the rocks for oigeons to nest their eggs. The would use those egg to make ink for religeous paintings in their monastery chapel and churches.

I ran from Goreme to Uchisar-castle and back via the Pigeon Valley. Beautiful trail and tunnels to run through. Ask the route before I left and could follow it easily.
