“Interesting hike”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

As a stop on a tour bus, it wasn't much to see, but it made for a very nice hike. I advise caution in that some of the trails faded into nothingness. Fortunately, my girlfriend is an experienced outdoorswoman.

“Caves”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

This was part of the Goreme Open Air Museum tour. I loved the Pigeon houses! We were there in winter and it was quite cold. This place would be better in the spring or fall.

“Coexisting Pigeons and People”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Small openings in the cave houses, and thousands of pigeons co-inhabited the valley. The pigeon droppings were coveted manure collected for a much more richer harvest. It is not clear if their meat was also eaten, but unlikely given their god like presence. Part of the Green Tour of Cappadocia,Turkey.
