From ancient underground cities to spectacular viewpoints, the Green Tour take you in the highlight of Cappadocia’s southern Landscape. Pigeon Valley We started our tour with the Pigeon Valley, which we enjoyed from above. The time we visited there were not so many pigeon but we might say that it was too early in the morning 🙂 The name comes from the thousands of pigeon houses that have been carved into the soft tuff since ancient times. Although they can be found throughout Cappadocia, they are especially numerous in this valley. They were carved wherever space allowed, including abandoned cave houses and churches.

Cappadocia in Turkey’s central Anatolian region, truly is right out of a fairytale with a spectacular landscape of caves, fairy chimneys, pinnacles and unique soft rock formations as a result of volcanic activity and erosion. We’d chosen to base ourselves in the town of Goreme because accommodation here had fit perfectly into our budget and we would be close to our areas of interest. We booked our accommodation via…
