The Inevitable Destination for Campers in Konya: Anamas Mountains

In recent times, the Anamas Mountains, which have become a favorite destination for mountaineers and camping enthusiasts, continue to attract the attention of both local and foreign visitors.

Nature lovers, looking to escape the city's monotonous and stressful life, find refuge in the Anamas Mountains, reminiscent of the Black Sea plateaus. These natural beauties are commonly referred to as "Konya's plateau paradise" among the locals.

The Anamas Mountains, an extension of the Taurus Mountains, are an important natural environment that must be seen, featuring unique lake and mountain views, vegetation, wildlife, and traditional villages and towns.

The region is a high-altitude geography that stretches from Beyşehir Lake to Eğirdir Lake in a northwest-southeast direction. The Anamas Mountain range, situated in the Western Taurus Mountains group, surrounds the Beyşehir Lake Basin from the north and west directions.

A branch extending north from the summit merges with the Sultan Mountains, separating Beyşehir and Eğirdir Lakes from each other. Another branch that heads southwest circles around the southern basin of Eğirdir Lake, splitting into two directions east of Isparta, one extending northward and the other southward.

The mountain, with a length of about 110 kilometers and a width of 50 kilometers, forms part of the border between Konya's Beyşehir district and the provinces of Isparta and Antalya.

With its summit reaching 2,998 meters and several routes leading to the top, Anamas Mountain provides an ideal setting for amateur mountaineers, hikers, and nature enthusiasts.
