General Information

Smoke Mountain Jeep Safari (Duman Mountain)

Travel from sea level to the summit of Duman at 6000 feet in the Taurus Mountains by jeep. (1990 m) Most of the day is spent on forest tracks and high mountain trails.

The first stop after about 20 minutes is the old farming village of Bezirgan in the hills behind Kalkan, where guets can see warehouses in the village. From Bezirgan, the route leaves the road and follows a forestry track through cedar woodland. The track becomes steeper, passing unbelievable views across truly wild country. On the west, guests can admire the coast and the long beaches of Patara and Olu Deniz. On the east is the impressive White Mountain, while below it lies the cliffs at the top of the Saklikent Gorge.

We stop for a liesurely barbecue lunch on the summit after which we begin the descent toward Saklikent. The route follows a series of high mountain trails and passes a number of traditional mountain settlements, ending high above the entrance to Saklikent Gorge. We arrive at Saklikent at around 16:00, just in time for a well deserved drink and a chance to cool off in cool mountain spring water.

Note: At certain times of the year it can be quite cool at almost 2000 in and we advise guests to bring some warm clothing.
