These images were taken just after I started working on a new trekking guidebook to eastern Turkey – a project which was subsequently put on hold while I finished work on a book on Torres del Paine in Patagonia, and became a dad (it’s not an area I would be able to work on in short trips). Hopefully I’ll pick up work on this again next year….
This particular visit to the Ala Daglar was the only time I’ve trekked with pack animals and guides, not because of any inherent difficulties in the area (it wasn’t my first visit) but because I needed to be familiar with some of the local guides and trekking agencies in order to be able to recommend them – or not – in the guidebook. In any case, I can highly recommend Demavend Travel for anyone who wants a guided trek through these mountains.
