Turkey | Geological area featuring "fairy chimney" formations gets PA status

An area in the eastern province of Van’s Başkale district, which is called “Vanadoccia” by locals due to its resemblance to Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys, has been declared as a protected area.


With a presidential decree dated Feb. 11, Vanadoccia became a “strictly protected sensitive area.”
