Evliya Celebi Way

The Evliya Celebi Way - Long distance walking & riding route.
This is the guidebook to Turkey's new long-distance Cultural Route, complete with route description, map, historical background, and places to see. The route follows the Ottoman gentleman adventurer Evliya Celibi on his way to Mecca in 1671; it runs for 600km from the Sea of Marmara via Bursa, Kutahya and Afyon to Usak and Simav. The route follows, as far as possible, ancient paved roads and visits the cities, sights and tiny villages that Evliya rode through and recorded in his "Seyatname" ("Book of Travels"). It can be explored by walkers, horse-riders and bikers. The UN has declared Evliya 'Man of the Year' for 2011, the 400th anniversary of his birth. This route is a practical addition to these celebrations - it enables modern travellers to directly experience Evliya's life, times and travels. It is brought to you by the noted Ottoman historian and author of "Osman's Dream", Caroline Finkel, and the originator of 'The Lycian Way', Kate Clow.

Kackar

The Kaçar - Turkey's Black Sea Mountains Trekking - july 2012
The Kackar Mountains are part of the Pontic Alps, a glaciated, granite mountain range which hugs the south coast of the Black Sea, extending from the Caucasus towards Istanbul. The mountain range is lushly wooded on the north, with pines succeeded at lower levels by chestnut, hornbeam and beech trees, with tea plantations and hazlenut groves spilling down towards the waves. The contrasting southern slopes are patched by summer pastures where black bulls graze and lakes, springs and streams are plentiful and clear.This guidebook and map describes 32 trekking routes in Turkey's Kackar mountains, ranging from half-day walks to multi-day treks. You can cross the passes between the granite spires by paved pack-horse routes or walk traditional footpaths between timeless villages and high pastures where hardy locals graze their flocks. The guide also includes comprehensive historical and cultural details of the area and clear colour photographs. The guide includes a 2 sided full colour contour map, 75cm X 48cm. It is an essential guide for a relatively un-chartered trekking destination.

Upcountry: The Lycian Way

The Lycian Way
Turkey's first long distance walk

What really distinguishes this walk is its intimate, almost careless, relationship with history. Lycia, in particular, enjoyed a period of ascendancy and unique culture before falling into the hands of Alexander the Great's successors and then the Romans. Later, Arabs, Crusaders and Genoese established themselves.

Traces of all these hands are visible still, and nowhere more so than along this path, their romance and charm enhanced by the old stones lying naturally among the scrub and goat pastures. Tombs jut out of mule tilled fields, sections of columns are stacked in the hedges.

 

It begins near Olu Deniz and ends just shy of Antalya, taking in choice mountain landscapes and seascapes en route,  with many optional marked detours to points of interest, typically Roman or Byzantine ruins not found in any  conventional guidebook.

The Lycian Way follows 500km of ancient footpaths and mule roads that linked the villages of the Turquoise Coast hefore the coming of the car.

Waymarked to Grande Randonnee standards, the Lycian Way is now open; this book is the official Guide.
