Soganli Valley, located 70 km. of of Urgup, is the result of volcanic activity in the region. This deep valley with sheer walls is traversed by the river of the same name. Cones of tufa (rock composed of lava, ash and mud) stand on each bank. Some cling to halfway up the sides and form a kind of barrier between the banks welcoming the bottom of the valley and the steep cliffs of the summit where no vegetation grows.
In the rocky cones, small holes covered with white lime are used to attract birds. This is why the region is called the Valley of the pigeon! Residents use the droppings of pigeons as a fertilizer.
Soganli Valley is famous for its rock churches decorated with frescoes of the IXth and XIth century.
