Trek the Anatolian Dolomites & Cappadocia, the Land of Fairy Chimneys

TR-flagTurkey.14 days €1,200.00
Turkey is a wonderland with its diverse region. Every corner of the country is more varied than every single one else. Mountains are the ones we like the most. Luckily we have more than enough to devote a life to exploration. Taurus Mountain Range is one of the chains in Turkey which lies along the south coast of Turkey and southern Central Anatolia. This gigantic mountain chain has a few sub-chains such as Aladaglar. Aladaglar is also named as Anti-Taurus Mountains. No doubt, this part of the Taurus Mountains is the most visited region. As a national park, Aladaglar is an absolute mountain paradise. Fascinating flora, a wild fauna inhabit the region. That is why not only sports enthusiasts but also wildlife observers come to the region for an amazing experience. The locals used to have a nomadic and semi-nomadic lifestyle. However, just a few tribes and families still keep the tradition to set up seasonal camps for their sheep and goat herds. In this white limestone region, mountains rise up to almost 3800 m from the deep valleys. The region is temporarily dyed into crimson color during sunset. Aladaglar takes its name and beauty from this pinkish-to-orange tone. Aladaglar has been our home for a long while. We designed this itinerary with our experienced guides to ensure the fulfillment of your trekking dreams in the region. The route passes through the high passes, green high pastures where locals put their summer tents, and over some of the most scenic spots including summits. We have no lifts and no mountain huts in the region. That means we have pure nature away from crowds. Lonely trails, well-equipped camps, and self-conscious & well-trained staff are the keywords for this trekking trip. We will keep on trekking in the worldwide known Cappadocia after the mountain part of the tour. Cappadocia is frankly the highlight of Anatolia! An extraordinary story of geology resulted in this fairyland. An artistic sculpturing of nature turned some volcanic tuff deposits into a fantastic landscape. Minaret shape pillars of rocks rise from the valleys of Cappadocia among the vineyards. Rock-carved ancient houses and hidden churches with frescoes still stand in amazing spots. The past just hugs the present in daily life in Cappadocia where we have some of the most beautiful hikes in Anatolia. This part of the trip puts a spell on every visitor’s life. In this itinerary, the trails in c will take you into the deep history of Anatolia as well as the outstanding geological story. Trekking along the valleys is the best way to explore without missing anything. We keep a day in the itinerary to enjoy the local experiences as well. Authentic accommodations, tasty local dining, the wonder of local arts, and flying over the fairy chimneys in a hot balloon will be unique experiences beside the trekking trails.
