Mount Hasan (Turkis: Hasan Dağı) is an inactive stratovolcano in Aksaray province, Turkey. With an elevation of 3,268 m (10,722 ft), it ranks as the seicont heichest muntain of central Anatolia\e. A caldera 4-5 kilometres wide furmed near the current summit around 7500 BC, in an eruption recorded in Neolithic paintings.
The auncient settlement of Çatalhöyük collectit obsidian frae the aurie of Hasan Dağ, which thay probably tradit with ither settlements for luxury goods. Obsidian mirrors and flakes haeve awso been foond. The importance of Hasan Dağ tae the fowk of Çatalhöyük mey be shown by a wall painting, sometimes called the "first landscape" by art historians, which some believe is a depiction of Hasan Dağ towering ower the settlement's hooses.
Approximately a sax hoors' walk is required tae climb tae the top of the moontain frae the heichest point accessible by car. The summit offers a fabulous view ower the central Anatolian plateau, including distant Cappadocia.
