6 days point-to-point trekking with porterage. Maximum altitude of 3450m, with optional ascent up to 3723m.

All breakfasts, 6 lunches and 6 dinners included.
6 days trekking and camping in the dramatic and wild Ala Dag Mountains, all mule supported. Altitude maximum 3723m, average 2250m.
Grade C. The walking in the Taurus Ala Dag Mountains is graded C as it's quite strenuous, with some steep ascents and descents. There is also quite a lot of scree in some places where some scrambling may be required. On the June departures there may well be snow so you will need to be prepared for this.
This trip is very much focused on the walking in this magnificent wilderness but you will be fully supported during the trekking and the camping. The camp sites are in spectacular and remote locations and as a result the facilities are basic. All the camps have showers and toilets although hot water may be limited or unavailable.
Normal group size and age
Normally 7 to 16, plus leader and local staff. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Fitness is important and you may have to improve yours before departure. Most treks at this grade compare to extended walking in mountainous terrain such as the Lakes of Snowdonia, but usually at significantly higher altitudes; climate and remoteness can also play a part. Previous trekking experience is desirable, but not vital if you are confident of your physical condition.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
