I attempted to walk Pigeon Valley, starting from Goreme. There is signage along this walk however sign number 8 directs you the wrong way. I was led straight down an overgrown, muddy and narrow path and encountered a huge, vicious, snarling stray dog. After running away up a hill to escape I eventually found sign 9. The hills are very slippery and steep so wear sturdy shoes. Do not attempt to walk Pigeon Valley alone due to the poor signage and danger of stray dogs (I have since read that other trip advisor reviewers have also had bad experiences with stray dogs here). The walks and views in the other nearby valleys (Rose and Love valleys) are much nicer and safer. Pigeon Valley is best viewed from above, either from the lookout point or hot air balloon.
