Take a quick tour of the area surrounding Goreme including Pigeon Valley. It is not the pigeons but the topography that is a must see.

A beautiful view of Uchisar from the lookout, there are many hikes you can do along this valley and you can see many caves which are used as pigeon houses

One of the most beautiful sights in the Cappadocia area. The fairy chimneys were studded with holes for pigeons to roost. A most ancient area in Cappadocia.
