Bulak Mencilis Mağarası

Our first stop was a cave near the village of Bulak. Bulak Mencilis Mağarası is the fourth longest cave in Turkey. It goes 6km into the hillside but only 500m are accessible to tourists. After climbing up a long staircase, I paid a few lira to the attendant to enter and enjoyed the walk through the cave. For a virtual tour, click here.

There’s no public transportation to the caves. For my excursion, I hired a taxi for a total of 90TL to take me to Bulak Mencilis Mağarası, İncekaya Su Kemeri, and the village of Yörükköyü. A trip to each site individually would have cost 35TL, but the driver offered to do all three for 90TL. There wasn’t a schedule and I was able to take my time at each site.
