German mountaineers climb in southern Turkey
Adjust font size:

A group of German mountaineers from the city of Augsburg climbed the rocks in southern Turkey, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported on Tuesday.

The Germans were quoted as saying, "aside from Germany, we climbed rocks in France, Spain and Italy. However, Olympos region in province of Antalya is the most attractive and touching of all locations where we have climbed."

The Germans added that they chose Olympos based on its natural atmosphere as well as Turkish hospitality.

The group has 14 members and the youngest member is 12 years old.

Olympos is a valley at the south coast of Turkey, 90 kilometers southwest of Antalya near the Town of Kemer.

The site attracts tourists, not only for the artifacts that can still be found, but also for its scenic landscapes supporting wild grapevines, flowering oleander, bay trees, figs and pines.
