Day 14: Hike in the country around Lake Van - Ararat 

Description:  Hikes in the country on Lake Van - nature and culture in Eastern Anatolia - If you think of Turkey, you think of the Turkish Riviera, Antalya, sun and beach holidays. But Turkey offers a lot more. It is not just a large country with different climatic conditions, with very different cultures, a long history that was part of the first advanced civilizations of humanity in Mesopotamia. Turkey is above all Anatolia with its mountainous landscapes and its almost deserted expanses. And Turkey is above all the people with their hospitality. The east of Turkey has a very special scenic beauty to offer, Lake Van. Kemal Ceven would like to bring you the history and culture, the landscape and the people of this region on a trip to the east of Turkey. Still little developed by today's tourism, eastern Turkey is still unknown territory. Whereby the prejudices of “wild Kurdistan” can now only be applied to the landscape. You are warmly welcome on this trip and guests in our homeland.
