Excursion to the Valley of Love Turkish
• Excursion to the Valley of Love Turkish
Today I suggest to visit the most recognizable place in Cappadocia - "Valley of Love", Turkey. All Cappadocia is a collection of heavenly landscapes, but the valley studded with giant stone "Obelisk", attracts the most tourists. This is the "Valley of Love".
For the scale at the base of the monument - man.
Once in prehistoric times there was boiling lava and ashes settled from the erupting volcano. Land in the context began to represent a puff pie. Over time, the volcanic activity has quieted down, and the water and the wind began to engage in the formation of the modern landscape.
In the usual mountains result from their activity are obtained gorge at the bottom of which rivers flow. Roughly the same thing happened in Cappadocia, but there are nuances.
We originally had a "layer cake", and some layers were stronger than others. If the durable layer lying above, it ages more sheltered under a "weak" lower. He was wearing too slowly, turning into some rocks. these stones eventually become an "umbrella", fleeing from the destruction of all that is in them. Well, around the rock gradually blown and washed away. Approximately so obtained similar monuments.
And where something goes in the "free floating".
Epic just look detached giants height from the bottom to the top of the gorge. After all, you remember that originally there was no canyon, and was just a plateau, the top layer of which were the stones that have become mushroom caps.
Climbers, by the way, these things do not climb because the main part of the column is very loose, almost sand.
In order to fully enjoy the views of the "Valley of Love", it is necessary for her to take a walk. Its length is about 4 kilometers and valley extends between cities and Cavusin Goreme.
We stayed in Goreme - a city-museum, where the houses are carved directly into these bizarre rocks.
We traveled with the car, so after a walk through the valley, we stopped more and the observation deck, located on the plateau above the gorge and looked over the valley from the top.
In those places, where a layer of strong "hats" worn out, or it was not at all, the monuments do not grow, but still interesting landforms are formed with smooth curved lines.
Love Valley. Turkey.
And on the horizon in the photo above you can see the hero of the occasion - Mount Erciyes, through which all this beauty here and organized.
