(4.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Güvercinlik Vadisi (Pigeon Valley) into our Goreme travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
