spectacular little valley at the farthest edge of Turkey. It was cut in two in 1921 by the vagaries of international politics, and remained off-limits to outsiders until the ’90s for its sensitive position on the Cold War border. The lower part of the valley belongs to Georgia. The top part, with six tiny villages, is made almost inaccessible by an atrocious unpaved road that crosses a snow-bound mountain and descends into a rain forest of almost tropical luxuriance. The villagers speak a dialect of Georgian and sing ancient polyphonic songs. The local honey is famously food.

Mr Nihat Gökyiğit, a leading Turkish businessman who is also a founder of TEMA, the environmental foundation, has now built a top-notch guesthouse in his native village. It attracts nature groups and the occasional traveller drawn here by the lure of the unbeaten path. The setting is beautiful and there is almost infinite scope for hiking expeditions. But it is the sense of being somewhere special that makes Maçahel an unforgettable experience. WARNING: Foreigners need permission from the armed forces to visit the area. The hotel can help with the formalities, but passport details have to be submitted two months in advance.

Saklikent Gorge is a beautiful natural wonder that attracts visitors from all over the region.  Its about 1-2km long.  Make sure you bring or rent watershoes. Go early if possible. And carry as less stuff as possible with you. It would be ideal to go in just swimwear and a camera and enough cash to get you inside.

Kula, in the Aegean province of Manisa, which plays host to natural rock formations that resemble the famed fairy chimneys of Cappadocia, is on its way to becoming one of Anatolia’s major tourist attractions.

Kula, in the Aegean province of Manisa, which plays host to natural rock formations that resemble the famed fairy chimneys of Cappadocia, is on its way to becoming one of Anatolia’s major tourist attractions.



We want to make Kula a tourist attraction with its wide range of cultural and natural wonders including historical houses, thermal waters, fairy chimneys and the Tapduk Emre Tomb — the tomb of famous Turkish poet and philosopher Yunus Emre’s master. The district will attract more tourists when the lighting and cafeteria have been completed,” he noted.


The formation of fairy chimneys in Kula:

“The fairy chimneys in Kula, dating back 2 million years, were formed from volcanic ash. These beauties are still standing in Kula, although some of them are being destroyed by nature,” said Professor Asaf Koçman of Ege University.

“Kula is another region, in addition to Cappadocia, that hosts this kind of formation, one of Turkey’s natural wonders that needs to be visited,” he added.



The Kula Volcanics has been a major attraction since the antiquity times. The great ancient Greek
Geographer Strabo (63BC-24AD) after his journey to Italy he saw these lavas and compared those
active volcanoes with Kula, he concluded that Kula volcanic area is just like once up on a time the
areas of volcanoes in Italy. So Kula seems to be the first place where “extinct volcano” is
implemented in the world. Strabo in his majestic book “Geographica” named Kula as
“Katakekaumene” (fire-born) because of the coal black lava.
The geological significance as well as the cultural identity of Kula was detailly described by infamous
French historian and archaeologist Texier (1862) in his book (Asie mineure: description géographique,
historique et archéologique des provinces et des villes de la Chersonnèse d’Asie). Scientific
researches in Kula have been done by several researchers from the nineteenth century up to present.
The important tectonic, stratigraphic and sedimentologic characteristics of the Kula volcanics were
reported by Hamilton & Strickland (1841) and Philippson (1914). Washington H. S. has prepared the
first PhD thesis on the area (The volcanoes of the Kula basin in Lydia) and described the Kula lava and
named it as “Kulaite” in 1900. Canet & Jaoul (1946) remarked that cinder cones in the area are
roughly situated on two straight lines whose strikes are sub-parallel to the graben edge. Later
researchers Erinç (1970) and Ozaner (1988) focused on the geomorphology while Ercan (1981) and
Bunbury (1992) focused on the petrology and tectonic of the Kula volcanites. Up to now five PhD
thesis and one Msc thesis have been submitted on Kula volcanism of which 3 are in English. There are
more than 100 papers of which related to Kula volcanism.

Eğirdir lake

SAZAN DOLMA (Çapak Dolma):
Büyükçe sazanın önce pullu derisi soyuluyor.
Sonra yumurtaları çıkartılıp, içi temizleniyor. Temizlenen balık, sarımsak,
maydanoz, sıvı yağı ve kırmızı biberle yapılan sosa bulanıyor. Balık yumurtası ile bulgurlu iç pilav hazırlanıyor. Bu iç pilav sazanın içine doldurulup karnı dikiliyor.
Kısık ateşli fırında 3 saat pişiriliyor
