Devrent (Imagination) Valley (Camel Fairy Chimneys)

The beauty of the three Fairy Chimneys standing side by side with the silhouette of a camel, which took almost 60 million years to form, amazes the visitors. The formation of Fairy Chimneys, one of the few beauties of the world, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1985, dates back 60 million years. In the 3rd Geological Period, with the rise of the Taurus Mountains, the Anatolian fault line in the north is compressed and the volcanoes in the region are activated. Güllüdağ, Erciyes Mountain and Hasandağı continued to spew lava until 10 million years ago. Cappadocia, which was an inland sea at that time, gets its share from these lavas. The lava, which dries the inland sea and streams in the region, begins to erode the rocks made of tuff stone, coming together with rain water and strong winds. This is how the Camel Fairy Chimneys were formed 60 million years ago. In order to feel safe, the human brain tries to recognize every object it sees (such as cloud, stone, sea wave) and compare it to another familiar object. Camel Fairy Chimneys also get their share from this situation and are compared to a giant camel that steps with its hump. As a matter of fact, it is seen that it is one of the uniquely beautiful gifts of mother nature. Deve Fairy Chimneys, which reflect one of the most beautiful and mystical images of the city, are frequented by thousands of tourists every year.

    Eşsiz bir doğa harikası genellikle deveye benzetildiği için deve peri bacası adını almış üstüne çıkmak isteyenler olmasaydı iyiydi :):)

    Güzel bir yer. Vadi içerinde gezindikçe güzel peri bacalarını ve manzara keşfedebilirsiniz. Eğer Nevşehir açık hava müzelerini ve vadilerini gezecekseniz mutlaka güneşten korunmak amacıyla şapka veya şemsiye kullanınız ve suyunuzu eksin etmeyin. İyi gezmeler.
