Browsing: ihlara valley

Ihlara Valley is formed by a stream erosion by lava sprayed from Hasandağı volcano. Melendiz Stream (Melendiz Çayı), which led the canyon through these cracks to take its final form, was named “Potamus Kapadukus” which means Cappadocia River in ancient times. The 14 km long valley starts in Ihlara and ends in Selime.
