Palandöken is an attractive ski resort rising from the authentic atmosphere of Erzurum, a historical town in Eastern Anatolia. The mountain, which is covered with snow for five months of the year, boast Turkey’s longest and widest range of pastes. The blend of challenging skiing and beautiful mountain views makes for an exhilarating skiing holiday.
Although skiing is the main attraction of the area, non-skiers will still benefit from the apres-ski entertainment, the clear, mountain air and the beautiful views of the surrounding scenery.
Erzurum itself is also well worth a visit for its well preserved Seljuk and early Ottoman monuments amongst which are the famous Çifte Minareli Medrese, a 13th century theological college, named after its two intricately designed minarets, the Yakutiye Medresesi with its interesting architecture and the ancient citadel. The covered bazaar is unusual in that most of the stalls deal in the locally mined ”oltutaşı”, a jet-like stone from which prayer beads and jewelry are fashioned.
