About Kaymakli, Nevsehir

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!

Kaymakli, Nevsehir Reviews

  • Better than Derinkuyu IMO (at least the lighting is cooler). If you've never been to one of these before, try to get a guide because there is no printed information whatsoever. However, the guided tour might not be that great, and they charge a lot, so better go with a group. Groups, on the other hand, make the place crowded and it sucks if you end up behind one. Also, I am not sure if they have official guides, because the dudes hanging out trying to sell themselves look dubious. Better ask at the ticket office.

  • amazing...& so Creepy... not a good place for claustrophobic... but its nice... try to follow the Arrows on the wall & you will find your way easily... don't try to get lost as i did..because there is no mobile coverage ... but its an amazing experience

  • Well preserved underground city. When we visit it is not too crowded so we have a good time not much queing inside. They have make a clear path/marker which way is going in and out. So you will not get lost in those confusing labyrinths. Interesting place to imagine how people in the old days week refuge when waves of attacking conqueror soldier come to this conquerors' favorite area. Some of the tunnel is narrow and low so we have to bend and squatwalk. But it is an exciting experienced. A must visit place when you are in Turkey

  • Superb Fantastic.... Should not miss this underground city. Loved it.

  • Its once in a life time oppertunity. If you are in Turkey, you should be here. Old cave/ channel system is mind blowing. But people with respiratory distress or pulmonary issues should avoid going se when you are in second floor underground you start suffocation due to low oxygen concentration and crowd. Every day is a busy day with hustle of tourists. If you are not afraid then enter the world of mysteries. Do look for huge stones used as doors and grinding stones. A few things are hypothetical but its not less than any adventure. If you have 1 % adventure in your personality, take a deep breath and enter the thousands year old caves system. But the thing most important to remember is, be low and mind your head😊. Bcoz the pathways are narrow and low, i hit my head 4 times during my first visit. Stay blessed.
