Korgan Plateau, which is famous for its natural beauties, hosts the shepherds herding their flocks and the local residents working in the vineyards, as well as nature lovers who want to spend time in the fresh air away from the noise of the city.
In addition to animal husbandry and agriculture activities, Korgan Plateau, which is enchanted by the rhododendrons of Ordu, has started to cheer with nature lovers who want to spend time in the fresh air away from the noise of the city.
Vast forests, nature with every shade of green, air with plenty of oxygen, highlands with natural spring waters meet the local residents once again with the warming of the weather.
Citizens who migrated from rural neighborhoods to the highlands, in particular, work in the vineyards and plant various vegetables. Highland residents clear weeds by hoeing for the potatoes they plant.
The shepherds, who come to the plateau with their small cattle consisting of sheep, rams and lambs, graze their flocks in the green meadows.
Children run and play in the fresh air and in the magnificent scenery and spend time with their friends.
Those who go to the highland for a day, picnic in the company of yellow rhododendrons, take pictures, collect flowers and take them to their homes.
Osman Çıtır, 65, who works in his field, said that he and his wife used to plant potatoes before and now they are hoeing. Çıtır said that they will collect the potatoes that will grow in 3-4 months and that they are also interested in the cattle they keep.
Ayşe Pur stated that they came to the garden with her daughters and neighbors and said, “The job has both difficulty and ease. We come at 08:00 in the morning and leave in the evening. We see our own needs from here.”
Gülay Eski, who visited the plateau, said that she and her family came to the Korgan Plateau to spend time and stopped on the way when they saw the rhododendrons. Emphasizing that they take selfies with flowers and love nature, Eski noted that they come to the plateau every year to meet this beauty.
Abdullah Eski also stated that they had a picnic with his wife and children on the plateau and they had a nice day having fun, adding, “We took pictures and had fun. We come to the plateau every 15 days. We drink cold water and have a picnic.”
83-year-old Nazım Uçarmak, who grazes his herds in foggy weather, stated that he feeds 120 sheep and goats on the plateau and said: “I stay here for 4.5 months. I am here all summer, when it snows, I only go to the village in the second snow. I stay here until the second snow falls. “I’m here until I say, ‘Snow is coming from the Balkans.’ I have been on this plateau since I was a child. I have been doing animal husbandry since I was about 7 years old. I grew up in the plateau, and I am on the plateau now.”
