Trekking by Lician Way + climbing Tahtali

 

This campaign is more complexities version Lycian campaign trail. It kept all the charm basic version - sea beaches, coves, mountain trails along the coast. But added two technically complex items: climbing the highest peak of the region - Tahtali (2365 m) and crossing the canyon Goynuk.
Climb to the top Tahtali in comfortable conditions (without snow) is possible in September, October, 'April and May. From November to March 1500 meters above the snow falls, and passage requires additional warm clothing and sleeping bags, shoes and possibly individual cats. Also in the winter due to significant snow cover greatly increases the level of rivers and streams, so go Goynuk Canyon is impossible.
Late spring and early autumn this campaign is just what you need for those who want to test their endurance. Rather long, very challenging obstacles - it will be a real adventure for strong spirit. In return you will get an unforgettable experience of the sea and the sun, from vast landscapes from the highest peaks, feel super flexible after passing the intricacies of the canyon. Add to this local flavor and get a wonderful cocktail for fall and spring seasons.
Trekking in Turkey are held in the autumn-winter-spring period (September to May). The basic program is relevant in December, January, February and March. In September, October, November, April, May - the actual program is complicated.
