  Mount Hasan

Mount Hasan (Hasan Dagi in Turkish) is an inactive volcano in Aksaray. Hasan Dagi (Mt. Hasan) began to erupt nearly 14 million years ago and remained active until it fell silent 8,800 years ago. With an altitude of 3,268 m (10,700 ft.), it ranks as the second highest mountain of Central Anatolia.

Approximately six hours walk is required to climb to the top of the mountain, as it is not possible to drive up. At the summit, one is faced with a fabulous view over the central Anatolian plateau, including the distant Cappadocia.

Hasan Dagi is near to Ankara-Adana E-5 main road; one can arrive there after driving one hour from Aksaray. There is about 2000 m net height for flight, but there are also very safe small hills for beginners.

Turkey's magnificent mountains and forests are mostly undeveloped, existing as wonderful natural preserves for an extraordinary variety of wild life, flora and fauna. Two of Turkey's most famous peaks are volcanoes, both inactive, Mt. Erciyes in Kayseri in Central Anatolia (3917 m). For climbers and those interested in the geography of mountains, Turkey offers a wealth of exploration. Glaciers, volcanoes, and peculiar geological formations such as karst prove irresistible to researchers and students of the geology. The challenging terrain offers opportunities to aficionados of outdoor sports, who find the most interesting experiences on the mountains of eastern, central and southern Turkey.
