Hakkari, one of the important centers of nature tourism with its high-altitude mountains, historical buildings and undiscovered beauties, has recently hosted nature lovers and mountaineers from various countries as well as many cities.
Hakkari, which stands out with its rivers, lakes and waterfalls formed by snow waters, over 30 peaks above 3 thousand altitude, and highlands where four seasons are experienced at the same time, has become a popular destination for local and foreign tourists.
Nature lovers and photography enthusiasts who come to the city, where an atmosphere of peace and security has been established as a result of the successful operations of the security forces, have the opportunity to discover the unique beauties that have been hidden for years.
A group of nature lovers, including a family of 4 from Germany, went to the Berçelan Plateau, where all shades of green, colorful flowers and snow masses can be seen together.
Nature lovers, walking in the region and visiting the historical Konak Church, slid over the snow masses with bags, brewed tea over the fire and gathered flowers.
