The Kurşunlu stream receives its water from the Kırkoluk springs originating from higher up Bozdağlar and the stream joins the Gediz River in the north of the Gediz Plain.

Adala Volkanik Kanyonu

Adala Volkanik Kanyonu

The Adala volcanic canyon known also as “Hermos Canyon” extends for 5km between the Demirköprü Dam and the Adala municipality of Salihli Town. This canyon was formed when the basaltic lavas of the Kaplan Divlit filled the valley which was cut by the Gediz River.

Çakırca Bazalt Sütunları

The columnar basalts were formed on the thick lava flows that came from Toytepe Volcano erupted about 1,260 Million years ago, located on the northernmost edge of Sarnıç Plato.

Evciler Şist

Evciler Shist

Rocks from the Menderes Massif that have undergone metamorphism can be found in the area of Evciler Village. These rocks typically consist of fine-grained rocks with ages exceeding 600 million years, such as mica schist, quartzite schist, chlorite schist, etc.

Suuçtu Şelalesi

Suuçtu Waterfall

Adala Volkanik Kanyonu'nun yukarı kesiminde yer alan şelale, Kaplan volkan konisinden çıkan bazaltlar üzerinde oluşmuştur.

Tabak Deresi Dev Kazanları

Tabak River Potholes

There are three potholes at different levels at the lower course of the Tabak River which has its source at the summits of Bozdağ Mountains. These potholes were formed at the knick point in the longitudinal profile of the river.

Kısık (Mağara) Deresi Antik Taş Ocakları

Kısık (Mağara) River Ancient Quarry

An ancient marble quarry is on the lower course of the Kısık River. This area is 3 km South of the ancient city of Sardis.

Tmolos Depoları Üzerindeki Hidrotermal Alterasyon

Hydrothermal Alteration of Tmolos Deposits

The Tmolos deposits extend like a continuous belt along the northern slopes of the Bozdağ Mountains. These deposits are faulted and tilted, and some hydrothermal alteration can be observed due to the effect of the water along the faulted zones.

Acısu Ofiyolitleri

Acısu Ophiolites

An ophiolite is a section of the Earth's oceanic crust and the underlying upper mantle that has been uplifted and exposed above sea level and often emplaced onto continental crustal rocks. Their significance relates to their occurrence within mountain belts such as the Alps and the Himalayas, where they document the existence of former ocean basins that have now been consumed by subduction.

Tmolos Depoları

Tmolos Deposits

Along the northern foot of the Bozdag Mountains there are fluvial fan deposits, which extend for approximately 110 kilometers in length.

Kaplan Divlit Volkan Konileri

Kaplan Divlit Volkan Konileri

Kaplan Divlit konileri, Kula volkanizmasının son evresinde oluşmuşlardır. Bu konileri oluşturan volkanik faaliyetler son 25 bin yılda gerçekleşmiştir.

Kula Peri Bacaları

Kula Fairy Chimneys

The Fairy chimneys in the Kula-Salihli Geopark have been formed by a combination of surface water erosion, splash erosion, and tunneling erosion (piping) in the soft layers.

Marmara Gölü

Marmara Lake

Marmara Lake was registered as an important wetland area in 2017 by the commission of the National Wetland Areas.

Üfürük Jeotermal Kaynağı

This cone is one of the 80 volcanic cones in the area and one of the most spectacular parts of the volcanic landscape formed during the 4th phase of Kula volcanism around 25 thousand years ago.

Gediz Grabeni

The Gediz Graben

Western Anatolia forms one of the most seismically active and rapidly extending regions in the world. It is currently experiencing an approximately N- S continental extension, at a rate of 30-40 mm year. It forms a part of the “Aegean Extensional Province”, a region of distributed extension that covers parts of Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Albania
