A world away from Istanbul, the rugged region of eastern Turkey is now opening up to travellers after years of instability. Here visitors can see churches and entire cities hewn from rock, fairytale castles on looming crags and fantasy palaces built by power-crazed Anatolian chieftains. Turkey expert Diana Darke provides all the essential practical advice on trekking and mountaineering; wildlife and birdwatching; and accommodation and eating options. Bradt's Eastern Turkey is the only guidebook dedicated to this fascinating region and includes first-hand accounts about everything from soaking in thermal pools to the ascent of Turkey's highest peak, Mount Ararat.

  • The first and only in-depth guide to the under-visited region of eastern Turkey
  • Dedicated chapters on bird watching and wildlife
  • Practical advice on trekking and mountaineering with first-hand accounts of volcano-climbing around Mount Ararat and Lake Van
  • Colourful proverbs and quotes from Turkish folklore to entertain and enlighten
