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.

To hike through this area is quite an experience. The crevices, tunnels and high rock mounds are so photogenic, you just can't stop taking photographs in every direction. The hiking is easy and a place well worth visiting.

What you see and how you see it depends on the time of day and no doubt the time of year. I was there in the late afternoon when the sun was casting dancing shadows amongst the landscape. The valley is a photographers dream.

We went there by bus we were standing on the top of the valley and i can tell you the view is breathtaking. Dont expect to see pigeons but there was a lot in the past. You need just 10 minutes in this place to have a look and take some photo. This is a must see in the region.
