Yanıkçukur Road

Yanıkçukur Road

Yanıkçukur Road is a high mountain road located in the Ağrı Province of eastern Turkey. It’s one of the highest roads of the country climbing up to Gül Tepe, a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.304m (10,839ft) above the sea level.

It's one of the highest roads of Europe. The road is 17.4km long. It’s gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. Menacing desert terrain with numerous steep, rocky climbs. Large, sharp rocks require tight maneuvering, increasing the likelihood of tire damage. High clearance, skid plates and differential lockers required. No stock vehicles. A complex network of poorly defined roads makes route-finding very difficult, even following a GPS tracklog. Very hot in summer. Carry plenty of water. Never drive this trail alone.
