Cappadocia’s famous “fairy chimneys,” a surreal landscape of carved-out towering rock formations, was our next stop (🎫 65 TRY – valid also for Zelve Open Air Museum). The rock formations emerged due to a geological process that began millions of years ago. First, ancient volcanic eruptions blanketed the region in thick ash, which later solidified into a soft rock called “tuff.” Then, when the natural forces of wind and water (erosion) did their work, only the harder elements were left behind to form the “fairy chimneys” that can be seen today, stretching as far as 40 meters into the sky.
