Pigeon Valley offers the impressive rock formations that are tipical of Kapadokya. Visiting with a guide is recommended to understand basic geophysics of the rocks as well as the story of the buildings carved in the rocks. Must do in Kapadokya!

It was very snowy the day we went which limited our exploring this area but we could see the houses that had been carved to house the pigeons hey bred to fertilise the grapes.

This is one that has many tourists but if you stick to the path and follow the river you eventually find some peace. There are many restaurants along the river that offer nice places to eat and relax. This is a 14 km hike that can be shorter if you wish. Must see The church of St- George ( many... More

Only viewed Pigeon Valley from the top car park but the view was stunning and if I had time I would have loved to walk down into the valley. There are plenty of small gift shops / tents at the top car park but it had a relaxed area without any of the usual pressure to buy things there is... More

Views from the scenic viewpoint were fabulous and resident pigeons' flight across the area was great. I just wish we had more time to hike the area.

I hiked Pigeon Valley yesterday and had a great time snapping photos left and right. People said to watch out for the one point where you walk to an unmanageable cliff. Well I think I did that and possibly something else. Found a nice older man who lives on the mountain to help me get back to the path. I... More

It was so fun! There were pigeons everywhere. I got some amazing pictures of them flying over the hills. Not a very long stop but so fun!
