This stunning valley has unique rock formations known as Fairy Chimneys, which rise high from the valley floor like chimneys & are dotted in their tops with birdhouses. Some reach at tall as 130 ft (40 m). Pigeons live in these dovecotes carved into the rocks and cliffs. Years ago the pigeons were used to carry messages from this remote region. Pigeon Valley is a great place for hiking. The mildly hilly trail through Pigeon Valley is about 2.8 miles (4 km) long running between Goreme and Uchisar.
