This is a great place to explore and take photos. I would recommend taking an umbrella to keep the sun away during hot periods. Walking shoes and not thongs are recommended

Armed with a bottle of water we set out on a walk which for us was in uncharted territory. We loved every minute of it and my camera was never still. Beautiful valley with amazing rock formations all around. It was in the main well sign posted but we still managed to take a wrong turn. However, quickly back on... More

Great walk from Uchisar to Goreme (or the other way), pass rock formation, lush gardens, and the best of the best: Hasan's tea garden. With benches and pillows in a breezy shade, Hasan makes you a cup of Turkish tea (rosehip is my favourite) and chats to you about this love for Cappadocia. Going to Hasan's little tea place feels...

What an incredible place, the view is absolutely amazing. This is our 2nd visit to Cappadocia and the 2nd time we visited the Pigeon Valley and it still took my breath away. A definite must for anyone travelling to Cappadocia.

We had taken the Green Tour and saw that our last stop was near Pigeon Valley near Uchisar, so we asked the guide if they could drop us off and we would walk back to Goreme. It was a beautiful walk and not too sunny as it was the end of the day. It's only about 3 km back to... More

We stopped in this magnificent valley as part of a tour. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do some hiking and I guess it would have been nice to do so since the view from where we stopped to see the valley was stunning. Perhaps you could ask before if you are going with a tour so that you can... More

We got a taxi up to the start of this walk, it takes a couple of hours, but take care it is not well sign posted & we took a wrong turn (not a problem, added to the adventure) & came to a cliff edge, but other walkers shouted across to us to show us the way - excellent evening... More

You will enjoy the nature! Two advice! 1) From Uchisar to Goreme it's easier 2) Start from the Uchisar castle. You can star before, but the first part it's pretty dangerous.

A lovely valley to visit, if walking from goreme look out for misleading route! At sign seven bare right, up the hill, it feels wrong but it is the right way to go! I met a lot of lost people on route and I myself got lost numerous times, but after finding out this it was pretty simple! Stop and... More

We just saw the panorama view. That's enough, you dont need to walk there. The landscape is beautiful as everything in Cappadocia.
