Trek the High Taurus Mountains a Overview

Trek through Turkey's magnificent Taurus Mountains and enjoy a wonderful cultural experience before walking and exploring Cappadocia.

Home to breath-taking scenery, stunning mountains, fairy chimneys, delicious food, a rich melting pot of cultures and a guaranteed warm welcome, Turkey is one of the most vibrant destinations on the planet and a land of smiles. In classic KE style, this Turkish delight of a walking holiday combines a jaw-dropping trek in the Taurus Mountains and charming walks in the incredible landscape of Cappadocia. We start in the heart of the remote and stunningly beautiful Aladaglar Mountains surrounded by alpine lakes and deep valleys before heading over remote passes to the spectacular Yedigoller Plateau. Here we’ll meet nomadic Turkish shepherds and enjoy tea as we learn about their lifestyle living in a timeless region. The ascent of Mount Emler (3723m), a wild and dramatic mountain, is a holiday highlight and offers a unique opportunity to summit a peak which is truly off the beaten track. After the immense beauty of the Taurus Mountains we’ll explore the stunning area of Cappadocia. Here fairy chimneys, cave dwellings and rock churches lie hidden in magical valleys and the result is a unique destination. We’ll wander through lovely Goreme, marvel at the spectacular rock pinnacles in the Ilhara Valley and explore the fascinating underground city of Derinkuyu, once home to over 20,000 people. This is a superb trekking holiday with unforgettable hospitality, incredible landscapes and excellent Turkish cuisine.
