The sight was just breathtaking.. had a lovely time. This is a great place for photo shoot. If you walk a little bit on both sides, the scene really changes from every point and with different shades of lighting.

Good for those who like to take landscape photography. You can also see this spot from the hot air balloons. Would be nice if they let you get closer rather than see it from a viewing point.

I hiked from Uchisar to Goreme during the end of march on sunny day. It was 4km downhill and easy hiking. However, it was not well marked so you might get lost. I encountered a local and he guided me to the right way. It was wonderful experience.

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.
