Without any doubt Aladağlar is the one of the most visited hilly geography of the Turkey. This part of the mid region of the Taurus Mountain is essential for those who are alpinist, hikers, bird watchers, campers and do outdoor sports in many different branches. Rocky mountains, forestland, deep valleys and canyons give outdoor enthusiastic unique chances.

Trekking ways connect the deep valleys as well as yaylas which local people use. In our tour we will trek through Aladağlar’ s high platos, forestland and yaylas. We will look at the highest yaylas of the region between steep mountains. We recommend this tour to our participants who are above 12 years of age, experienced about trekking before and have no physical disability.

We planned our program as an activity of exploration and traversing the skirt of Aladağlar. We include a few valleys which are entrance gate of the region, to our route. Also we take high gateway and scenery points. Moreover our route will trek along the yaylas where semi nomadic people live in. Mountain lakes look like a blue bead in this rocky geography.

We invite participants who want 4 days of trek in Aladağlar where is kind of a holy place for outdoor sports in Turkey.
