My fiancee and I did the Pigeon Vally hike from Uchisar castle to.Goreme. We got a bit lost, the pathways are not clearly marked; this caused us a bit of stress because we had a flight to catch later that evening but after climbing up the hill we got our bearings back and figured it out. This hike was much more beautiful than the Rose valley hike we did the day before.
However, the best part was Hassan's tea garden! Hassan has been running this cute little tea garden for about 5 years about 1/3rd of the way from Uchisar to Goreme. It has a hand written sign (marker on a big plastic sheet) and benches with cushions arranged under some shady trees. Hassan is super sweet, a good natured Cappadocia native who served us delicious apple tea and peanuts for just 4 lira! Just what we needed to boost our energy before finishing our hike
Honestly this is one of my fondest memories of the entire 10 day Turkey trip, be sure to take this hike and say hi to Hassan for me!
