Kaymakli - Review

One of the highlights of Nevsehir, the underground city of Kaymakli is must on every list of things to do in Nevsehir! Set deep into the crust of the earth, this city is a formation eight levels under the ground. However, today, only four levels are open to the public. It is indeed an experience in its own, to go four levels below the surface of the earth. Administratively, it lies in the Central Anatolia Region of Turkey. It is a result of an excavation that took place in the 19th century, after which it was open for public access in the year 1964. It lies a little outside the city of Nevsehir at about 19-odd kilometers. Definitely a must-visit while in this city!

  • Incredible, seemingly never ending 3 dimensional labyrinth of tunnels, rooms and shafts. Watch out for drops and be prepared to squeeze through small spaces. The area that is lit is vast but only a tiny fraction of the full extent of the city. The guides are excellent and well worth paying for to avoid getting completely lost (definitely not good if you are at all prone to claustrophobia...)

  • Great place. We hired a guide for 2 of us for 60 (we bargained a bit) and we're glad we did. There is no audio guide available and no signs inside to read. Our guide said he had grown up in the area and played there as a child. Keep in mind some passages are very low and narrow, was ok for me (180cm) but was almost squatting a few times. If you have bad knees be careful

  • This is one of two underground cities in Cappadocia. We chose to visit this one because we heard that there are less crowds. There are still lots of people and unfortunately the selfie-stick crowd seems to be in the majority. Nevertheless, exploring this place is worth your time, even though eventually it becomes repetitive. The city is like a labyrinth, the chance to get lost, however, is zero. Be prepared to bump your noggin several times if you're not careful. If you're claustrophobic better avoid this place.

  • It's insane to think people used to live here their daily lives. This place is just amazing, with all the underground rooms and corridors. A word of warning though, if you have a bad back or can't bend your body and walk, you'll have a hard time exploring the really good part of this magical place. This place gets a 4 star rating because it's kind of small and the adventure ends quickly.
