About Taurus and Aladaglar

Taurus is a mountain range in southern Turkey, and Aladaglar represents its central, highest part. More than 60 peaks are higher than 3000 m, and the highest is Kizilkaya with 3771m. Altitude 3700 m exceeds alsop two of its neighbors, Demirkazik and Emler. In Taurus there are great opportunities for trekking, climbing and ski touring. The ski season is short, from the beginning of February to the middle of April, but it is really something special. The stark contrast between white snow, blue skies and red rocks is unprecedented.
