If we'd not been to the underground cities in Saigon, this might have been interesting. There are numerous levels to see, but we were allowed only to walk on one level. There are a few narrow passageways to navigate which were difficult for those with difficulties walking or unable to walk in a bent over position.The most interesting part of all are the huge circle stones that were rolled into place to prevent the invaders to enter the occupied chambers. It does give one pause to imagine what life would have been like in the dark, underground maze.

As others have mentioned, this attraction is not for the frail or those with heart conditions, as you are climbing on uneven ground, going through narrow tunnels and in some small spaces. The cost is 8 TL or about 4 USD. Our guide, Ender, explained that the latest research suggests the caves were not for every day living ,but more for storage of grain/ food items & in times to hide from the enemy, as the rock contains asbestos. It is a wonderful experience, so different from other attractions!

I was amazed at how many levels down this place went and how many people and animals could live there at one time. Every detail was thought out, such as how to vent the smoke so no one would be able to see it from the outside. It's not for the claustrophobic, some place are tight and low. People with young children might have some difficulty and you'll have to leave the stroller behind.

This experience is not for the claustrophobic, or the very tall. You will need to crouch to move from chamber to chamber. Nevertheless, if you are intrepid, this is a great tour. Really gives an authentic glimpse of how these people survived.

Don’t enter if you’re claustrophobic; some people with mobility issues may struggle too.
It’s mind-blowing to consider how so many people, along with animals (large & small) lived in these secret cities, for months at a time & were able to sustain themselves. Not so sure I’d have liked the lack of proper toilets though! It’s thought that waste products were stored, for some time, during periods of having to remain hidden.
The function of many chambers & rooms has been deciphered (including the winery! Got their priorities right) & we loved the ‘Indiana Jones’ style big wheels that could be moved into position to seal off entrances.
Can’t begin to imagine how long it took to construct these cities, with so many levels (we didn’t see all) or the physical exertion required to do it.
