When you turn your face west from Antalya, you see a mass, dispread through the sky in all its glory. It is almost like the throne of a god who wants to dominate everything on the shore and at sea. Tahtalı Mountain. Skirts start at sea level. He owes this to his majesty. Beydağları army along the shore is almost like the most commandant of the army. For many years the paths of the road are visited by the highlanders.
We have been visiting this spectacular friend in this region for many years. We like to enjoy the view, long walks and the view from the summit. This time we have prepared the Tahtali Mountain Winter Climb. One day you will feel the four seasons, you will enjoy a long walk, snow passes will be a climb. Since the evaporation in winter is much less, our view will be much more clear! We recommend a different mountain at the end of the week, easily to try out a climb, to escape the city and to have a long hike. This activity promises a pleasant time in a short space of time as well as a pleasant walk on an imposing mountain.
We also organized this program as a weekend trip with hotel accommodation. In Ulupınar we will be staying in a charming facility on the outskirts of the mountain. After a day with short trips and warming in the famous Lycian region, we will make our peak climb and return to our homes. This event, which we are sure to see a lot of demand, is a candidate for our classics.
We make our tour even more attractive by offering different transportation options. If you wish, you can use our option of highway transportation or if you wish to meet Antalya airport.
Take your place in this wonderful event before the places run out.
