Göreme - cappadocia


The village of Göreme in Cappadocia (Turkey)

The village of Göreme is in the middle of a surreal landscape of hoodoos (fairy chimneys), many of them carved and used as troglodyte dwellings.­

The eroded rock formations of Cappadocia look like sandstone, but it is actually volcanic tuff, a type of rock consisting of consolidated volcanic ash that originated from ancient volcanic eruptions in the region.­
