Tunc Dagi (2649 m.)

Tuncdagi is the highest mountain. It starts from Konyalti, one of the famous beaches of Antalya and rises from the sea right away in a magnificent way. It is, at the same time, an Olympos ( so-called sacred mountain in the ancient times.). It has 3 peaks and the one in the middle is the highest. Apart from the peaks 2640, 2648, 2649 in order, has another peak of 2519 meters in the east. It is called "Bereket Zirvesi" (Peak of Blessing).

Tuncdagi is called with different names by the local people such as; Beydagi, Kemikli Dag, Feslegen Dagi, Bereket dagi and Develi Dagi. The northern part is slightly sloppy and in this area there are two snow passes. The southern part is very steep and so technical equipment is essential to climb. The western part, except the outskirts down below, it is slightly sloping. In order to reach the mountain, the first place to get is "Karcukuru Yaylasi" (Yukari Doyran Yaylasi, Bahtili Yaylasi) that is 7 kilometers to the east of Saklikent. It is possible to find local minibuses (called Dolmush in Turkey) from Antalya during the summer months. On getting to the highland of 2030 meter height camping is possible; hence a three hour climb from Karbogazi I is also possible. At the end of a direct climb to the main peak, at a 2600 meter height a beautiful flat area is observed between the peaks of 2649 and 2648 meters.

Mountaineers from Antalya have climbed Tunc Dagi several times. It has gained popularity to make camp on the flat area at the height of 2600 meters and return the next day. In 1988, at a height of 2648 of the peak of that mountain, named Cataltepe, a diary was placed for the memory of Recep Catak who had lost his life on Mount Ararat and another peak at a height of 2616 is named "Kayatepe" after Adnan Karatepe, Izmir City Mountaineering Representative. This peak has also got a diary.
