Full-Day Red Valley Hike & Kaymakli Underground City Tour
After a hike through the beautiful Red valley, visit the magnificent Kaymakli Underground city and immerse yourself within the fascinating region's natural and cultural grandness.
Following your hotel pick-up, your adventure begins in the Red Valley, where your guide takes you through breath-taking landscape of red clay and unique rock formations. The whole valley is coloured in a spectrum of fiery hues that slowly change throughout the day. As you walk, be amazed at the natural vibrancy around you, taking in the vineyards and orchards scattered throughout the stone formations that add another flare of colour. Your hike ends in the Cavusin Village, which is famous for its rock-cut churches.
After exploring the unbelievable churches and breaking for lunch, head to Kaymakli to go to its wonderful underground town. This city is a network of around 100 subterranean tunnels carved eight levels into the earth. Visit the first 4 of these floors and learn about the ancient civilisation that once populated the caves as you wander through wineries, kitchens, and churches.
Once you emerge above ground once more, your guide takes you to the astounding Ortahisar Castle, a large castle-like rock formation, as well as the city surrounding it. Explore the honeycomb of rooms and tunnels carved into the natural fortress, and take in spectacular views of the region before heading back to your hotel.
