The Taurus Mountains

The Taurus Mountains separate the Mediterranean region from Central Anatolia, and the highest point is the 3,756-meter-high Demirkazik peak in Nigde Province. It reaches to the Euphrates and Tigris rivers in the east and stretches westward along a slope from Lake Egirdir. It is at the same time, a fragment of the Alpide belt in Eurasia. It has many routes for trekking and hiking and has two ski resorts, which are Davras, whose elevation is 2,637m located in Isparta Province, and Saklikent, whose elevation is 2,550m located in Antalya Province. The railway viaduct in Adana Province and Lake Karagol are the other attractions of the mountains.
