这是路过的一个小景点，在格雷梅国家公园里面，有点像乌奇希萨尔城堡，斜坡那边有很多鸽子，可以抓拍鸽子飞起来的瞬间。还可以打卡蓝眼睛树 more »It's a small spot of passing, in Graeme National Park, a bit like Uchishisar Castle, where there are many pigeons on the side of the slope, and you can capture the moment the pigeons fly up. You can also punch the blue eye tree.
Beautiful place with the amazing view of the valley. I'd suggest drinking a cup of delicious turkish coffee here on sunset with the beautiful range of colors constantly changing. It's an amazing experience with the cave hotels on the side with the castle and the whole valley right in front of you! P.S. Ask why it's called the pigeon valley if you don't already know it. Enjoy! 😄
Large and beautiful valley with lots of greenery as well as some tourist shops at the entrance. Its name surely come from the pigeons idling on a steep wall at the entrance of the valley. A 4 km hiking trail leads through the valley, which provides great landscapes. Definitely worth a visit.
