Can you drive to the top of Mount Duldul?

Set high in the Amanos Range, the road to the summit is extreme, with dangerous drop offs. It’s totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicles only. The road was built to construct a cable-car to the summit, in the 2010’s. According to the legend, the horse of Ali bin Abu Talib (caliph of the Islamic State from 656-661) passed through this region and left its footprints.

Is the road to Mount Duldul open?

Starting at Kuşcu, the road features hundreds of hairpin turns and very steep sections. It’s very narrow. The road is seasonally closed as the northern slope of the mountain is under snow for 10 months.
