Fodor's Review

To fully appreciate why Bursa is called Green Bursa, visit lush Uludağ Milli Parkı. The 30-minute trip up the ultramodern teleferik (gondola)—one of the longest in the world—is worth it for the views alone. The first station, Sarıalan point (5,364 feet), is lively in summer, with restaurants and picnic areas. In winter, skiers and night-clubbers head to the mountain's 5,938-foot high Oteller Bölgesi (Hotels Zone), 7 km (4 miles) farther up. The teleferik departure station is a 15-minute ride from Heykel; board a dolmuş (shared taxi) just behind the Bursa Kent Müzesi for 2 TL or hail a cab. There are also various walking paths up the mountain between Bursa and Uludağ; the hike takes about three hours each way. Take a sweater or jacket, as temperatures fall dramatically as you climb, even when it's warm downtown.
