Mountains cover 3/4 of the Province of Kahramanmaraş where four different climates meet - Southeast Anatolian climate in Pazarcık, Eastern Anatolian Continental climate in Elbistan and Afşin, and Mediterranean Highland climate in Andırın and Göksun. In this mostly unspoiled environment, the combination of different climates brings with it a great variety of natural flora and fauna. Because of this diversity, the many beautiful plateaus in the province of Kahramanmaraş are not the same as those found in the Black Sea region.
