“pigeon valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Great walk from Goreme along the valley floor to Uchisar. We then took the rose/love valley route back. It comes out on the Avanos/Goreme road so a 2km walk along the road side. All up 12-14 km ish walk. Take water on a hot day and hat or umbrella. Great rock formations and plenty of time to set up for photos,we didn't meet anyone else in pigeon valley!! The hike markers look like tombstones and are randomly spaced

This is an absolutely stunning area and this is another place to see these rock formations. Our guide took us on a very nice hike and we had plenty of time to take lots of pics. bring water in the summer!

“Fantastic hike with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Great hike from Goreme to Uchisar. When leaving Goreme, be sure to follow the official hike markers and not hand-made signs that point to Uchisar via a "Panorama" (you'll end up at a restaurant and then have to walk to the of the way to Uchisar along a street). The way up to the castle is a bit of a climb but the view from the top is really worth it. The hike one way is about an hour. Highly recommend!!

“Great hiking. Interesting views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is one of the best valleys for hiking along with Rose/Red, Love, and Imagination valleys. Views are amazing. In the summer you will want to hike very early or later in the day. Take your camera and lots of water.
