Cave Hotels

As far as I know, cave hotels can be found just in a few countries such as Turkey, Iran, Jamaica, Australia and France, but the situation in a region in the east of Turkey and the northwest of Iran where these modern cave hotels are located are different, in this region there are some villages where people still live in their ancient cave houses.

Laleh Kandovan Hotel

First about this different skyscrapercity:

The cone-shaped houses of Kandovan were originally carved into the rock face of the mountain nearly 3,000 years ago, people still live in these cave-like homes, some of which reach as high as 60 meters (about a 20 storey tower).

Maymand Traditional Cave Hotel

First about 12,000 years old village of Maymand:

According to Unesco: http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/5183/ This village shows the way of continuous life of human beings through the history; those who utilized at most the existing natural facilities and harmonized with the surrounding nature.
