TURKEY: A GREAT PLACE FOR MOUNTAINEERING

 

Turkey is full of mountains; it is like a mountaineers best dream. The Anatolian peninsula is surrounded by mountains. To the north the Anatolian range sweeps by the Mediterranean shoreline. Turkeys mountains are a portion of the Alpine-Himalayan range. For the most part ranges are pristine without development.

Mt.Agri or Ararat (5165 meters) is a great climb for mountaineers during the summer months as the weather is very conducive: very clear, beaming with sunshine, and arid. The only difficult weather is above 3000 meters because of the change in weather conditions at higher altitudes. It is the best course of action to tackle the climb on the southern side because it is safer having the better passage, access to communication, and conveyance.

Turkey mountaineering is some of the world's best !


The tallest mountain soaring to 3,916 meters is Erciyes and it sports a ski resort named after it. It is a dormant volcano with the city of Kayseri lying at its southern foot. It is a very popular place for mountaineering in Turkey. The majority of the mountain climbing is tackled on the northwest and eastern sides.

The remoteness of the northwest face is quite attractive to many mountaineers. There is a good camping spot on the northwest side of Erciyes, which is the Sutdonduran Plateau. Erciyes located in Kayseri and provides excellent mountaineering in Turkey with a gorgeous scenic view.

  Interestingly, there is a peak Nemrut sitting in the southeast and one in Eastern Anatolia. The latter peak is where the Nemrut mountaineering action takes place. It is 3,050 meters high. To climb mount Nemrut the hike is started on the southeastern side. Mount Nemrut boast the largest Turkish lake called Lake Van. The perfect time to climb this mountain is from June to September.
