The reason a lot of people come out to Cappadocia is for the rock formations. Many of them are unusually shaped and it makes you wonder if aliens didn't do a bit of the carving.
Cappadocia is a very large region of valleys, villages and towns.
I'm in Goreme right now and this makes a perfect base for lodging and to start my sightseeing adventure. It's walking distance from many great sights such as the Open Air museum, Love valley, red valley and I can book my hot air balloon ride here.

Derinkuyu Underground City - Ancient Mega City
Please visit my friends at Megalith Research
Derinkuyu is an ancient underground city located in Turkey. It is one of the largest underground cities in the world and much of it's history and use are shrouded in mystery.
Rediscovered in the 1960's, it had been used for thousands of years by ancient peoples. Some claim, aliens used it as an underground base, while other say that's simply ridiculous.
There are 8 levels in the 4.5km city and that is only what is known and has been excavated by archeologists. Today, only the first 3 levels are open to tourists and only about 2.5km's for viewing.
It is possible to drive here by yourself if you rent or a car, or take any number of tour companies that offer trips from the nearest city which will by Goreme (about 1 hour drive).
If you take the Green tour from Goreme, Derinkuyu will be your last or second to last stop of the day.

The Most HIDDEN Underground Cities

Have you ever imagined a life without the sun? How could we possibly survive? Today we'll show you how with the most impressive underground cities!
1. GROWING UNDERGROUND, LONDON:
In this city located in an old war bunker in London, they managed to sustain a whole farm. This seems almost impossible, however they did it by using a hydroponic, vertical, pesticide-free system. Also, they use the space much more efficiently, saving 70% of the water used on it.
2. EARTHSCRAPER, MEXICO CITY:
As you had already imagined, this is the complete opposite building to a skyscrapers, as it goes down towards the Earth core. 65 stories to be precise. It has a pyramid-shaped design and an open central space where daylight can flood in to the depths of the earth.
3. THE LOWLINE, NEW YORK:
The Lowline is a project based on the success of the Highline, an abandoned elevated railway converted into a lush public space. The aim is to give an unused trolley terminal a makeover. It's expected to be opened by 2020. The natural light would be directed below ground using a system called remote skylights based on parabolic reflectors and optic fiber cables.
4. RÉSO, MONTREAL: (ray-zo mon-tree-all)
This is the largest subterranean complex in the world and has been in use since the 1960s. It's a way of hiding from the terrible cold temperatures they suffer. We can find multi-level shopping centers, hotels, restaurants and metro stations. All linked by tunnels.
5. UNDERGROUND CITY, HELSINKI:
This underground city includes more than 125 miles of tunnels filled with everything you would expect in an overground city, and the best thing is that they have plans to continue to expand the subterranean public spaces.
6. SUBTROPOLIS, KANSAS CITY:
This city occupies 1,100 acres of abandoned limestone mines since 1964. More than 1,600 people work in this naturally climate-controlled, rock-carved space every day. We can find subTropolis houses and everything from cave-aged cheese to car storage space, and an array of small businesses. Also it naturally maintains temperatures between 18 and 21 °C all year-round.
7. UNDERGROUND SCIENCE CITY, SINGAPORE:
In Singapore they've had a space problem for a long time. So they designed this Underground Science City for up to 4,200 scientists, researchers, and professionals in Research and Development facilities. But also, there are many restaurants and shopping malls.
9) Burlington, U.K.
This is a city built by the British Government in 1955 in case of a nuclear attack. A 35-acre network of hidden entrances, streets, canteens, and purpose-built rooms to house the Prime Minister, the entire British government and the Royal Family. It even had a telephone switchboard and a hospital inside. However it's been closed off since 1991.
10) Derinkuyu, Turkey
This is an ancient multi-level underground city extending to a depth of approximately 60 metres. It is large enough to have sheltered as many as 20,000 people together with their livestock and food stores. This city could be closed from the inside with huge stone doors and had ventilation and running water.

Explore Turkey’s Hidden Underground City
Eighteen stories below ground in Turkey’s Cappadocia region, the ancient city of Derinkuyu remained hidden for centuries. The underground city was rediscovered in 1963 when a man knocked down a wall in his basement and stumbled across a hidden room. From there, an excavation revealed the impressive network of tunnels connecting ancient churches, schools and living quarters. In total, the city likely could have protected 20,000 people and their livestock from wars and natural disasters.

Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia - Turkey
In a spectacular landscape, entirely sculpted by erosion, the Göreme valley and its surroundings contain rock-hewn sanctuaries that provide unique evidence of Byzantine art in the post-Iconoclastic period. Dwellings, troglodyte villages and underground towns – the remains of a traditional human habitat dating back to the 4th century – can also be seen there.

Turkey is one of the most amazing country where East meets West and getting visa to visit turkey is also not a very complex process. If someone has valid Schengen visa, residence card, they can get turkish tourist visa online in 10 minutes. Cost for the visa was around 45$
We started our journey to Istanbul from Amsterdam, we flew from Turkish airlines and it was a comfortable 3.5 hours flight. As we always do, we had pre-ordered our vegetarian food in the flight and it was good. We landed at new Istanbul airport which started in April 2019 only and it was very huge and modern.
We were staying only for one night in Istanbul and was traveling to Cappadocia next day morning so we had booked a hotel which was close to Istanbul airport but that airport is now closed and new airport is around 40 KMs away from city.
There are many ways to come to Istanbul city from airport, you can get airport taxis, buses etc and buses are mostly common means to transport and it's also cost effective. We took Istanbul card and recharged it with 100 Turkish Lira and reached to place which was close to our hotel. From there we took the taxi which costs 30 TL and we reached to hotel which was basic but value for money hotel and then we explored the neighborhood for dinner.
Next morning we got up early to catch our flight, we hired a taxi just from outside of our hotel and reached airport, it costs around 140 TL. We had our quick breakfast and coffee at airport, which costs around 70 TL and boarded our flight from new airport to Kayseri.
At Kayseri, we had already arranged pre-booked taxi from our hotel for just 35 TL per person, as soon as taxi received all the guests, we started from airport to Goreme city where we stayed at this beautiful property, Harman Cave Hotel. This was a perfect cave hotel in Cappadocia on the hills and we had amazing view of the fairy chimneys and hot air balloons from the open terrace of the hotel. After check-in, we took some rest before we started our quick trip to city center for lunch.
At Goreme center, we found this indian restaurant, Namaste Indian, food there was superb and we had great time interacting with person there who was from Afghanistan and he learnt hindi by watching movie 'Khuda Gawah'.

Underground Cities - Cappadocia, Turkey | GoPro HERO4
This was a very interesting experience. Amazing history and I am happy I had the chance to see the underground city. Be prepare to walk through tiny tunels when you are going down and up.
Kaymakli is a city dug deep into the soft volcanic rock in the Cappadocia region. It is estimated that around 3,500 people once lived here. This is a fascinating experience for seeing how people lived and stayed in the ancient time. Hope you guys enjoy it.
