Özkonak Underground City (Ozkonak Yeralti Sehri) Tours and Activities

Özkonak Underground City (Ozkonak Yeralti Sehri)
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. 

Practical Info

Fourteen kilometers northeast of Avanos, entrance to Özkonak Underground City is 8TL. The site is open every day (8am-7pm in summer, 8am-5pm in winter). On weekdays, you can get there by a dolmus (shared taxi) from Avanis. The journey takes about 30 minutes and drops you off 500 meters from the entrance.
Address: Özkonak Underground City/Nevşehir, Turkey

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.
