History and Nature at Inbasi Cave

History and Nature at Inbasi Cave

Inbaşı Cave is a suitable travel destination for all ages. It is located in Korualan Town, which is a part of the Hadim district of Konya. The galleries and waterfall inside Inbaşı Cave should definitely be explored. You can easily reach the waterfall from inside the cave. The length of Inbaşı Cave until the waterfall is 100-150 meters. The entrance of the cave is used by the locals as a picnic area. While some of the gallery sections of Inbaşı Cave require some effort to climb, those who want to discover a mysterious world come and explore every corner of the cave.

It is stated that the water flowing out of the cave to the outside is among the sources of the Göksu River. About 50 meters inside the entrance, there is another gallery entrance that extends upwards on the right side of the road. This is a place worth seeing due to its colorful formations inside. However, the rocky ground is slippery due to moisture and water flow, making it a challenging passage. There are hand-made steps, doors, and various traces and remains estimated to belong to the Byzantine period inside the cave.

The basin at the entrance of the cave creates a naturally enclosed resting area. Therefore, a trout farm has been established at the foot of the water, which increases during the winter months and is quite cold. Various areas have been built around the cave to allow for barbecuing, and it is used by locals as a picnic area. Walnut, plane, pine, hornbeam, and poplar trees extend around the cave, creating postcard-perfect views of the valley, especially in the autumn. The unique natural beauty of the area, where you can see the waterfalls and galleries inside the cave, can be easily explored by groups of all ages. Although there may be some difficulties in reaching some of the gallery sections of the cave, cave enthusiasts visit the cave by taking this into account. When we see the days when the region is opened to tourism, it will be possible to welcome numerous domestic and foreign visitors to Hadim Inbaşı Cave.
