If you are not afraid to lose half-day in the summer in Turkey, it is possible to descend from a train in КЕМАХЕ (КЕМАН), the historical city on bright river banks with a complex of tombs of various eras and big Byzantian сельджукской a fortress. The small town is small, but in it there are some shops and one hotel of Turkey without a sign. On weekdays on the asphalted 50-kilometre route from here quite quite often go долмуши to Erzincan, transporting tourists in Turkey. Kemakh could become the main base for mountain campaigns to mountains Munzur which snow peaks tower over the southern coast of Euphrates. But from 1930th there is a Kurdish question which either is solved now, or is postponed by arrest and imprisonment of the winner of PKK of Abdullah Ocalan. All this leads to that if you suddenly decide to notify gendarmerie on your intention to make excursion in Turkey and to rise to mountains, to you it can simply forbid. It is better to begin a route in 20 km to the East in АЛПКЁЕ (ALPKOY) — here nobody will stop you, and Grand Canyon which lasts in the heart of mountains, is from here even closer.
Travel to Turkey from Odessa will give the chance to you to learn history of this country and available traditions.
