Yavşan Nature Park

 36 km from the city center, Yavşan Tabiat Parkı, is Turkey’s 39th nature park. Please note that the first 15 km of the road is unpaved, but stabilized, so 4 wheel drive vehicles are a practical option. The area is very rich in cedar and fir trees on a narrow area of plateau. The air is fresh and there is a natural spring. The altitude is about 1700 to 1800 m. This natural park is also very rich in terms of plant species. As a result of scientific studies carried out on Yavşan Tabiat, 67 plant families and 27 species were dispersed in the area and 529 kinds of flora were detected.
