Cappadocia's fairy chimneys create a magnificent view.
The story of fairy chimneys, unique in the world, formed millions of years ago, emerged after the volcanic eruptions of this region.
Cappadocia is a volcanic area covered by 300 km long fairy chimneys with Kayseri in the east, Aksaray in the west, Kırşehir in the north, Niğde in the south and Nevşehir in the center. This volcanic area has the underlying tuffs and above them fairy chimneys formed by basalt and andesites.
Fairy chimneys were formed with erosins in time with the effect of rains and winds. Some of reach a height of 40 meters, with a "hat" on them. Unable to be carried by erosion, the neck under the "hat" becomes thinner and falls down. A fairy chimney in this shed will be further eroded later on. This process is constantly happening even today, and very old chimneys are replaced by younger chimneys. We can see the best examples of these natural wonders near Göreme, Ürgüp, Uçhisar and Avanos.
