Bakirdaglari Tahtali Dagi Bakirtepe Saklidoruk
Alabelen Tunc Dagi Ardictepe
Ardictepe (1960 m.)

It is the smallest member of Bakirdaglari. It rises up from the north of Alabelen. In comparison with the other members of Bakirdaglari, Ardictepe has the widest forest area. The peak of Ardictepe, which is shown as Karadag on maps and called Baklacik Dagi by the local people, is completely bare. The name Ardictepe gets its name from the juniper trees that cover the mountain almost up to its peak. Pine trees can only be seen on the lower outskirts.

When observed from Antalya, the mountain seems pointed but in fact it is not that sharp. It has got a ridge that goes towards Alabelen. Every side of it, except the south, overlooking Alabelen, is covered with steep rocks. To get to Ardictepe, the first place to reach is Geyikbayiri township, that is 650 meters from the sea level. If the road's open, one can travel by car or go on foot from Geyikbayiri to Feslikan (Feslegen) Yaylasi. After passing Sekerevler-Sakarpinari and before reaching Feslikan Yaylasi, and by turning south one can reach the 1960 meter high main peak. Climbers who reach Ardictepe are awarded with a wonderful view. Antalya lies like a carpet below. There is no a more suitable place than Ardictepe to watch the spectacular rocks of Geyiksivrisi.
