Gebeli Orman Gözetleme Kulesi
Gebeli Orman Gözetleme Kulesi is a high mountain tower at an elevation of 2.175m (7,135ft) above the sea level, located in the Isparta Province of the Mediterranean region of Turkey.
Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. Driving at night, or in poor visibility, is not recommended for drivers unfamiliar with the road. This road has innumerable twists and turns (18 hairpin turns). This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness. Don’t stuff your belly too much. Eventually, you might feel vomiting temptations.
The road to the summit located in southwestern Turkey is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with dangerous dropoffs. With drops that appear to be hundreds, if not a thousand feet to the side, experienced drivers are the only ones who should attempt this route. You might want to take this into consideration if you have passengers that don't like heights. The drive will take some skill, some patience, and some tolerance for vertigo. It's very intense because there are no guard rails at the edge and there is little room for error if oncoming traffic swerves in your direction.
