The unique landscape around Göreme in the Cappadocia region is situated in eastern Anatolia. The relief of the landscape consists of a high plateau of about 1'000 m in altitude which is dominated by high volcanoes, of which the Erciyes Dagi (3'917 m) is the highest.

The surrealistic geological formation of this landscape started during the period, when the volcanoes Acigöl-Nevsehir (1'689 m), Erciyes Dagi (3'917 m) and Hasan Dagi (3'268 m) began to erupt frequently. The deposits of volcanoes ash, lava and basalt laid the foundations for today's landscape. Earthquakes and ongoing effects of erosion have contributed to form the strange valleys and the "fairy chimneys", which can be seen today.
