Trabzon is the best city to start. Demirkapı is the highest peak in Trabzon province. Not a steep trail makes it a moderate hike in good weathe,in July and August.Lakes surrounding the peak relaxes one and they are rewarding for those who climb it.It doesn't need special authorisation of entry. The mountain range is probably the cleanest mountain in Turkey.
A diary notebook has been on top of the mountain since 2001 left by the mountaineering club TEDAK.

Thanks to Erhan Terzi for adding this peak.
Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Demirkapi in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
There is one trip report for Demirkapi.
- Log #20249 - by Erhan Terzi on Sep 27, 2006All my climbs were under sunshine. It is always sunny before noon due to special climate conditions. The camp place is clean like water around and highly safe. Climbing up and down takes 6-7 hours...
