The other road is the road that reaches the summit from Başköy village on the southern slope of the mountain. This route does not include any technical climbing difficulties.

The highest point of Palandöken Mountains is called Büyükejder Hill. Here, there are communication transmitters and a private business cafeteria, and the summit can be reached by the chairlift during ski season.
