The Pigeon valley is just a Vantage Point for a good photo op. Nothing much to do. Should do it only if included in the tour. Not worth to pay for it to be visited

Pigion valley is good for walking and interesting. It is a bit difficult to hike up the end of the valley towards the village. Do not try this without good walking shoes, as you might slip on the lose sand and fall into the ravine. If you are not into adventure, you can just walk the same way back to... More

Loving the panaromic view from up the valley. The unique rock formations that we don't see everyday, so why miss the chance?

This was a spectacular 1/2 hr (hour with photos) hike from Goreme to Uchisar. The landscape is ever-changing and you can stop for Turkish tea and chat with the lovely man 3/4 of the way. There is only one slightly difficult minute on the trail but you can do it!

Pigeon Valley is one of the famous valleys of Cappadocia, dotted with countless fairy chimneys. As the title suggest, this is where Pigeons lived and were farmed for food and their dung which was used as fertiliser. The fairy chimneys here are covered in tiny windows and look a little different than the ones designed for people. The valley starts... More

If you like the outdoors consider experiencing the beauty and uniqueness of the region's landscape up close and personal by hiking and exploring the Pigeon Valley. It was a highlight of our Goreme visit. Suggest riding the bus from Goreme to Uchisar and visiting the castle. Then hiking back down to Goreme through the valley. The trail was a bit... More

The view is breathtaking and so worth stopping. The panoramic view lets you see another view of the region. I didnt see too many pigeons. There is an evil eye tree where you can take some great photos. In addition there are some shops and a clean free bathroom.
