Güvercinlik (Pigeon) Valley, an essential part of the list of must-see places in Cappadocia, is located between Uçhisar and Göreme. The nests carved into the rocks for pigeons in the valley continue to host many species of pigeons today. In the valley, which has a length of approximately 4100 meters, there is a 10 - 15 meter high waterfall that fascinates its every visitor.
In Güvercinlik Valley, the expectations of the visitors who want to witness history while integrating with nature are met. It is possible to come across those who take walks, participate in yoga activities and have a pleasant time alone with nature in the destination, which is characterized by the magnificent view that creates a fascinating effect on each visitor. There are areas marked in red in the valley so that explorers do not lose their way. Those who do not comply with these measures, due to the presence of blind spots in the valley, may have to pass through the places where they have already walked once again. Apart from the dovecotes, there are also historical ruins such as the Tığraz Underground Refuge and a bulgur mill in ruins that must be seen.
Güvercinlik Valley can also be explored by a bird's eye view. Uçhisar Castle, one of the most popular destinations of Cappadocia, greets the valley from above.
