Experience a striking and surreal landscape at Güvercinlik Vadisi (Pigeon Valley), with its plethora of dovecotes carved into the cliffs and various rock formations rising from the valley. Years ago, pigeons were an indispensable form of communication in this remote region, and their droppings were used as a fertilizer. You can hike along a number of signposted trails, all of which offer superb views. Several paths pass friendly teahouses, providing a place to rest and refuel. Wear sensible shoes to help ensure your safety and comfort when traversing the hills.

  • Now, this was the real view in the Cappadocia area.Standing on a cliff at sunset. The stalls were a bit kitsch, but the vendors were friendly. Again no beer. 
  • This place has beautiful views and is very nice for a picnick or hike in the afternoon. It is also a very good option to see the dawn or dusk!
