Erciyes Dağı

Erciyes Dağı

Mount Erciyes is a high mountain volcano at an elevation of 3.330m (10,925ft) above the sea level, located in Kayseri Province, in Central Anatolia, Turkey. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. You must consider a big risk of avalanche on winter and in every season falling rocks is a big danger. It's one of the highest roads of Europe.
Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail very steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. The climb is very steep, with sections up to 15%. Erciyes was historically known as Argaeus, a name derived from the king of Macedon Argaeus I.
