Kapadokya Fairy Chimneys
Kapadokya Fairy Chimneys
Thousands of years ago when Erciyes Mountain was active, the lava that was cast forth covered an area of approximately 20,000 km. Afterwards, when it became an inactive volcano, this region encountered a tremendous wind and water erosion for hundreds of years. As a result of this erosion, the soil was abraded and dragged away and the rocks which were able to withstand this abrasion were left uncovered. The small rock pieces that are hard and gravelled remained on top of the larger rocks and formed the fairy chimneys of today. (Location: Uçhisar)
