  CAPPADOCIA This name was given to this magic region by the Persians, which means, "land of the beautiful horses". Today, this land in Cappadocia is known as the land of the fairy chimneys.The chimney like landscape is the result of geological changes that took place from 2 million to 65 million years ago. Two non-active volcanic mountains, Mt Hasan (2363 meters high) and Mt Erciyes (3917 meters high), last erupted two million years ago. The eruption of these volcanoes led to the accumulation of layers of ash, lapili, and lava that came together through sedimentation. The erosion (by wind and rain) over the centuries of this soft sedimentary rock led to the creation of the amazing rock chimney formations that are abundant and unique in Cappadocia.
