Came to the Pigeon valley as part of the green tour, right beside the jewellery store. The place was filled with pigeons and featured many of the iconic rock formations of cappadocia. You could see the Uchisar castle in the distance.

Definitely have to drop by to take a photo. If you’re lucky enough, you could get the flying pigeon as your backdrop!

I was here part of the Green tour. The Uchisar Pigeon Valley is just in front of Onyx Factory. We were allowed a 30 minutes stop here. Stunning views but get here before 10 am to avoid tour crowds.

A sight to see and to imagine so many pigeons in one valley where their droppings are used as fertilizer.

Rug up, take plenty of fluids plus good hiking boots and then enjoy the walk. From Goreme it is a 3 or 4 hour trek.
