66 Reviews

Smaller than Cappadocia’s other subterranean cities like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, Ozkonak Underground City (Özkonak Yeraltı Şehri) is also much less crowded. On the northern slopes of Mount Idis, as you hunch to stroll the tiny corridors of this ancient city you'll feel very big compared to the people who once lived here. Likely built in the Byzantine era, though perhaps even older, Özkonak Underground City was rediscovered in the '70s by a local farmer who wondered where his excess crop water was going. Turns out it was going into a huge subterranean city stretching ten floors deep and able to house 60,000 people.

Reaching a depth of 40 meters in total, today only the first four floors of Özkonak Underground City are open. As you wander the tiny corridors, you'll see the sophistication of the city which had a built-communication system made up of pipes that connected all 10 levels. Look out for holes in the walls too — these provided ventilation in the event that Özkonak city would have to close itself off to the outside world if enemies tried to invade. The underground city also had its own winery and water well, and if enemies did get too close, well Özkonak’s inhabitants were more than ready to pour hot oil on them through secret holes designed for that very purpose.

This is the best tour if you only have one day in Cappadocia. Every traveler should see the fairy chimneys, one of the underground cities and the cave churches in Goreme Open Air Museum. almost all tours will take you to those three in a day. They will include the Love Valley, Devrent Valley and Pasabag (Monks) Valley as well. But none will take you to the top of the Uchisar castle like me for a sunset or include a walk into the Love Valley to approach the biggest fairy chimneys of Cappadocia. This is the most comfortable and detailed tour you can find online. I tust my 10 years of expertise in Cappadocia and you will enjoy every moment of the tour.

There are many daily Cappadocia Tours which name are Blue, Red, Yellow and Green in our region. Those are the most popular and touristic places in Cappadocia. As a Gomeda Valley Travel we thought that we have to find something more colourful. In this scope we organised RAINBOW TOUR. Rainbow tour consists hidden beauties of the Cappadocia. On the contrary of standard daily tour, Rainbow Tour will show you “not touristic” and “Village Life” of the Cappadocia.

You'll discover an area's fascinating stories, cultural wealth, rich history, and tradition.
