Review. Hiking in Turkey «Lycian trail and Cappadocia»


Translated from Russian



Instructor - Oleksandr Moroz   

General opinion   

I wanted to test yourself in a multi-day hike and discover new mountains, but there is also a chance to visit Cappadocia:)
For me, the Lycian way is the mountains and nature, changing with each passing day, with every step. Mountains, sometimes as a native Crimean, and sometimes radically different!
I first saw land crabs! in the mountains! And yet there is a growing thorny acorns and snowdrops in October! And abandoned gardens with grenades! and grapes! It all seems to taste better when you eat as soon as broke:) And yet, when we are on the route met the river with bath, we, of course, did not miss the chance to swim and relax by the river:) And early in the morning when we climbed to the top of Olympus with us woke up to the sun. It is unimaginable, to stand on top in the morning sun, to see all his past and future route, to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this place (except for us at this time at the top was only a caretaker of the cable car station:)
And the Mediterranean sea, a great end of the mountainous part of the route is warm, much salting of the Black sea, and is in its enveloping bliss of relaxation, especially after six days of camping:)
And Cappadocia — just a fabulous place, another reality. "Stone pillars" (perimacular) and the unusual valleys, rock formations, it's just hard to believe in their natural origin. In the rock carved dwellings, churches, and entire castles and monasteries. And the pigeon! Everything is just amazing!
Thank you all:)
