Tour skiing in the mountains in the Eastern Anatolia Region in the spring has started to attract more attention with the efforts to solve the terrorism problem.
Tourists coming from Germany, Austria, France and Italy on a one-week tour, climb the 3-meter-high mountains with special skis and return to the summit. Stating that those who come to tour skiing spend an average of 2 euros per person, the tour ski guide Yıldırım Beyazıt Öztürk stated that Europeans stay in the hotels in the centers and show an interest in the culture by tasting the local foods.
“These tourists climb the mountains on a daily basis and enjoy the summit. The return to the summit goes down to the mountains leaving a trail. We take skiing tourists to a mountain every day. Mountains in Ağrı, Süphan, Kaçkar, Munzur and Van region attract great attention in spring. Tourists especially prefer mountains with no skids and no mechanical facilities. "
Groups of 1-12 people coming from Germany, Austria, France and Italy on a one-week tour spend an average of 13 Euros per person. Foreigners climb the mountains at an altitude of 2 thousand meters above sea level in Ağrı, Süphan, Kaçkar, Munzur and Van regions, where both seasons are seen together with the spring with tour ski guides Yıldırım Beyazıt Öztürk and Mustafa Tekin. Tourists who climb on tour skis with glued seal skin enjoy climbing to the summit and slalom again with their skis in non-skid areas. "

The tour ski guide Yıldırım Beyazıt Öztürk, who reminded that they skied in the high mountains of Çatak region of Van yesterday, together with the European tourists, said:
“The peace process provided the opportunity to climb the mountains without worry. We travel to the East with European tourists. All of the mountains above 3 thousand meters in the East are snowy this season. The skating techniques of the tour participants are quite high. We are now in Van with our group. We stay at the hotel in the city center. We arrive at the foot of the 45 thousand altitude mountains around Van after a 3-minute journey by minibus. We reach the summit by climbing skis. On the way back, we are loading adrenaline with a great skiing pleasure. Then they get to know the local culture and taste the food. They also find the opportunity to see and examine historical artifacts closely. The tour ski tourism continues until early May. "
