Beautiful hike. There is little mark on the trail, so it can be a bit confusing and you don't know where you will end up. However, that is the fun of it.

This is not a too difficult hike and the views are great. There are lots of carved out places where the pigeons would roost. The people would use their droppings for many different things, which was quite interesting.

It's so amazing that they made a huge valley just for pigeons and pigeons live there till today. They used the pigeon egg to create tempera for paintings & their feces for fermenting their agriculture~

Pigeon Valley connects the towns of Goreme and Uchisar. Like most of Cappadocia the valley was formed by volcanic lava shaped by wind erosion. The three mile hike through pigeon valley is a strenuous but manageable hike. Along the way there are caves and rock formations to check out. In the summer time the sun is very hot but the wildflowers are also quite beautiful.
