The Beauty of Transformation

 

The geological formation that monumental quality caused by erosion of lake deposits as a result of water and wind erosion that  belongs to Late Miocene-Early Pliocene period in a valley.

The fairy chimneys in the Celil Strait, which is located within the borders of Kuşça town of Cihanbeyli district of Konya, is so different than Cappadocia and Narman.  Despite the destruction, fairy chimneys spread to the strait continue to challenge time. In fact, the trees of the forested area were cut by time. The Strait of Celil and its surroundings now look like a desert.  However, the valley owes its legendary appearance to erosion. Thousands of years of transformation have created these magnificent natural monuments. Celil Strait is surrounded by fault lines. Crushed parts are easier to worn due to faults; the hard cuts resisted and protected the underlying layers. It is unique each seasons and fascinating visual feast, especially in autumn sunsets.
