Mount Erciyes, Kayseri

4.5
Mount Erciyes, also known as Argaeus, is a volcano in Turkey. It is a large stratovolcano that is surrounded by many monogenetic vents and lava domes, and one maar. The bulk of the volcano is formed by lava flows of andesitic and dacitic composition. At some time in the past, part of the summit collapsed towards the east.The volcano began to form in the Miocene. At first, a volcano farther east named formed from lava flows. Then, again to the east, large explosive eruptions formed a caldera. During the Pleistocene, Erciyes proper grew inside the caldera together with a group of lava domes. Lateral eruptions of Erciyes may have generated ash layers in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean during the early Holocene.The last eruptions occurred during the early Holocene and may have deposited ash as far away as Palestine; the occurrence of historical volcanism is uncertain. Future eruptions of Erciyes may endanger cities in the north.The volcano was glaciated during the Pleistocene, and one regular glacier still exists today, but is receding.

  • It would be a shame to come does not go in Caesarea. even more remote is already imposing mountain closely bi nice. sports activities a lot and very good for all teleferikli the runway at different levels. When your grandfather tells you no go to sausage bread, tea ski Barzan then salep drink to warm. each step of the different pictures çekinirsiniz. There are also expensive and adequate service hotels ucuzda. Lions tours are showing enough from n (kayseri City Center and kapodakyanın each side). so come on

  • Were on a wheelchair in Erciyes in January and February 2018. Pleasantly surprised. First, sufficient slopes for intermediate level skiers. Mostly blue and red. There is a map on the Internet. The road, I understand continue to build in the summer. Absolutely no queues. The price for everything in 2 times lower than in Europe and Krasnaya Polyana to equipment and skating. 20 minutes and you're in a major city Kayseri where hundreds of good restaurants, shops, entertainment. Airport 30 minutes away. An hour's drive from Kayseri there are thermal springs and of course Cappadocia. Fairy tale. There are things to do unexpectedly pleasant and with Turkish hospitality. Good luck to everyone!
