Discover The desert lands of the East Turkey

Bordering on Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Iran, the austere eastern region of Turkey is a succession of vast desert lands. This region, not as endowed in tourist facilties as its western counterparts, is more of a destination for travellers who are less demanding in terms of comfort. Less visited, Eastern Anatolia exudes more originality and gives a taste of the countries of Central Asia. It boasts monuments worthy of interest, such as the Seldjukides fortresses (Sivas and Divrigi), the caravanserais, the monasteries, and the impressive mausoleum of Nemru Dagi (best seen at sunset). However, do bear in mind that distances are long and certain precautions should be taken into account, as Kurdish activism remains rife (see the Security information).
