Buban Fairy Chimneys The Buban Fairy Chimneys, situated in Oğuldere Village of Sancak town, are a remarkable natural wonder that grace the landscape of Bingöl, Turkey. These unique formations are the result of water erosion on tuff rock, creating stunning pointed shapes that have become a significant feature of the area. Oğuldere Village, which was formerly known as Buban, is surrounded by short fairy chimneys that can be found on many hills in the region. The town itself is relatively new, having been rebuilt following an earthquake that destroyed the old town thirty years ago. A hike from the new to old part of town offers breathtaking views of green hills, pastureland, and ancient cave homes with fairy chimney-topped hills between them. In addition to the ruins of the old town, the area boasts several nearby caves, some of which are natural while others are homes carved into the rocks. Although these caves can be challenging to locate without prior directions, they are well worth the effort to discover and explore.
