Pigeon Valley, Goreme Reviews
The stopping point to Pigeon Valley is a point overlooking the beautiful valley. There is a walking trail down the valley to visit the various spots including the caves. More importantly, there are plenty of pigeons flying around. It is said that the droppings of the pigeons are harvested once a year as fertilizer for the field. This location appears to the centre of the Evil Eye. Perhaps, that is why the guide than said that, legend has it that at night, the pigeons turn to fairies!

Take a cheap local bus from Ürgüp station and ask driver to let you out at Uçhisar intersection. An easy walk downhill from there to Pigeon Valley and beyond. After exploring Uçhisar you can walk another 2 miles along the scenic highway to Göreme where mass tourism will spoil your marvelous day unless you quickly get back to Ürgüp on another cheap local bus.
beautiful valley i've ever seen! there are so much pigeon, you can give them food but must pay the food first.
Really recomended if you come to nevsehir
