Visited this area as a part of a tour. The rock formations are absolutely amazing - the whole holiday was worth a visit to here alone.

Must see for all visitors. My advise is after seeing Uchisar castle please start trekking towards Goreme and you will never forget the wonderful rock formations.

We stayed in a lovely hotel overlooking Pigeon Valley. It was amazing to see the balloons fill the entire valley. We walked around part of the valley and took photos. The valley is full of tufa pinnacles, some of which had cave houses in them. This whole area is amazing and almost other worldly. I want to go back.

Do not miss it, worth a 2 hours walk, specially when it is terribly hot during the day elsewhere. That was one of our greatest experince beside the open-air museum.

It was a rainy day and when I came to visit this valley, there was this lovely rainbow.. Breathtaking. Here you can find several shops to buy souvenirs, the famous ice cream man but you must seat down and enjoy the view and the nature. Very calm and relaxing.
