Konya Metropolitan Municipality brings the Isauria Road, which dates back to the Ancient Roman Period, located between Konya's Bozkır District and Antalya's Akseki District, to tourism. More than 300 tourism guides and professional mountaineers from all over Turkey made a 4-day mountain walk on the 76-kilometer section of the 174-kilometer-long hiking path, which is on the way to becoming one of the new trekking routes of Turkey.
Konya Metropolitan Municipality organized a camping walk for the promotion of Isauria Road, a real historical road from the Ancient Roman Period.
The ancient city of Isaura, which is called Zengibar Castle in Konya and one of the largest provinces of Rome in history, attracts the attention of visitors with its walls, mostly standing bastions, theater, triumphal arch, church and rock tombs.
Ali Ziya Yalçınkaya, who conveyed his thoughts about the organization organized on the 76-kilometer stage of the 174-kilometer historical road, said, "It was a very challenging and enjoyable organization with 300 participants from different parts of Turkey."
Gülgün Çimen, who participated from Izmir, said, "This was a route I have been following for 4-5 years. What really draws me is its energy. We are in a place that is very mysterious, very mystical, intertwined with nature. I took this opportunity and joined because I thought I would live to the fullest."
Isauria Road, located between Konya's Bozkır District and Antalya's Akseki District, is one of Turkey's new trekking routes with its stone-paved roads, cisterns on the road, inn ruins, wells and arches.
The trail arrangement works of the remaining part of the Isauria Walking Path, which is 174 km long in total, are continuing.
