“Feed the Birds!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Pretty amazing to see what pidgeon houses look like! It was fun to stop and feed the birds. Not a top location but an easy quick stop enroute.

“so surreal.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

unbelievable to see nature's creation. green trees way down in the valley with pigeons flying...and you standing up on top looking down from a rocky terrain. there is such a calmness when i'm there. already been there 2 times.

“Interesting views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Great view and interesting story. I had never known that pigeons could be anything but annoying. To see that people had dug into cliffs to provide haven for the pigeons was amazing.

“Lovely hiking experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

It's about 1.5 walking in the valley and the trip ends up at the highest point of town, the castle, really nice view. It was a little bit tricky in the valley, since the direction sign wasn't very clear and even some pointed to a wrong direction. But over all it wasn't very difficult to reach your destination.

“Pigeon Valley Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

As mature travellers we asked the Canyon View Hotel owners to drop us off where the easy access was which is just below the next town from Goreme. A little way down the trail do stop off at Hassam's and share an apple tea with him. He is a hoot and doesn't ask for any money although we gave hime some money. The walk is gentle and spectacular. Walking down is much easier than walking up! A lovely walk which is not too taxing.
