Getting there Edit

Aladağlar is located in the center of 3 major cities: Niğde, Adana and Kayseri. There is no airport in Niğde, but there are in both Kayseri and Adana. International passengers have to make one transfer for Adana or Kayseri.
Adana and Kayseri airports are both the same distance from Aladağlar, 160 km.s and it takes nearly 1,5 -2 hours. Aladağlar covers a large area, so you
need a standard vehicle to travel into the mountainous region and to reach the climbing routes, thus renting a vehicle from the airport is recommended.
If you are flying to Ankara, you should consider a 5-hour car ride to
Aladağlar. Also it takes a 7-hour ride from Antalya. Both roads are in good condition and not tiring at all... Read more
