Excellent view!

really beautiful view on the Valley but not much to do around may be to buy some souvenir, have a look, take a nice picture and go on :)

We found Pidgeon Valley to be well signposted from Uchisar (in our experience not many valleys are) but as we'd travelled by car to see the Castle we were unable to complete the walk to Goreme and back. With hindsight we should have caught a bus (or hired a taxi) to Uchisar and then hiked through the beautiful green valley... More

We were dropped at uchisar castle and walked the valley. It took 1 hour from the castle to the edge of Goreme and another 10 mins to the center of town. It was an easy walk, mainly flat or downhill. The track is wide at the beginning and end but narrows to single file in the Centre. A few places... More

The formations and colours of the rocks, along with the old use of windows and rock-cuts for pigeon breeding, and a lovely walk through the valley, make this fascinating.

So this place has more pigeons coming and hence a spot to visit.. Evil eye tree for pictures and no doubt great views..each place merits 15minute halt at most.. If... More

Highlight was the evil eye tree and the pigeons..its interesting when you hear the farmers actually encourage the pigeons as they use their poop as fertilizer

The panorama is stunning--this is very very pretty. We went at the end of the day, and even after a full day of seeing beautiful scenery, this was still amazing.....

It's very nice, open lovely place. Some pigeon nests are visible far away on the rocks. Lots of pigeons are there nearby for people to see, i guess because people keep feeding them. It's nice but not a must to see place.

Another beautiful valley in the Goreme area. Gets name from pigeons there. We did not walk through it though, but saw it from several vantage points.
