Ihlara Cappadocia tour program

You will be picked up from your hotel or airport and start your excursion with a visit to Derinkuyu Underground City. There are 8 floors of tunnels open to the visitors and this is enough to have an idea of the sensation of living in a labyrinth like this. The ventilation shafts, storages, stables, sleeping chambers makes a complete environment. Being different from Kaymakli, there is a missionery school, a confession room, baptism pool which draws the attention of the visitors.

After visiting Derinkuyu, continue to Ihlara Valley, a beautiful gorge 16km long, both sides are lined with rock carved churches. It has a unique picturesque value along the canyon. The valley reaches to the cave villages of Ihlara and Selime on both ends.

Lunch break in Belisirma Village then drive back to Urgup. On the way stop by Selime Village to take a look at the so called "Above Ground City", rock houses carved in the upper parts of the rocks which makes it quite difficult to access from the ground.

Our last stop will be Agzikarahan Caravanserail This building is constructed along the ancient trade routes by Seljuk Turks. This place of trade and commerce was designed to intimidate foreign merchants.
