The Mount Ida Region (Kaz Dağları)

Hiking

Trekking is one of the region's main attractions. There are few designated trails, but people from the villages or at the hotels are well informed about routes and happy to help. Several agencies organize tours. The walks are delightful, and there is usually something to see or do on the way, such as bathing in the Bath of Aphrodite or swimming in the pool under the Başdeğirmen waterfall, where you can also picnic on wooden tables set in the middle of the river, and gaze at the Roman bridge that was the only passage to Troy.
