Akdağ Mountains

Akdağ Mountains are at the east part of Tauros Mountains. From the garden of Tlos Mountain Lodge, every morning you can see  the amazing view of these mountains, and if you would like, by 30 kms car travel, you can reach more than the foot of the mountain..

Till June there is snow on high altitudes of these mountains and there are nice walking paths and flatlands around the mountain.. Having a short walk at one of these paths would be great in summer time as the weather would be cool.
