Cycling in Turkey – Diyarbakir to Malatya – Route Information

IMG_0579 This 271km route is a real challenge for touring cyclists as it involves cycling over the amazing Nemrut Dag mountain.
If you really like a challenge, a 110km section with nearly 3000m of ascent and descent between Karadut and Malatya.

It can be done over 3 days although it would be more pleasurable and probably healthier to do it over 4 or 5 days and this would give you more time to soak up the amazing scenery of this part of South Eastern Anatolia.
The Nemrut Dag summit is a highlight although with no road over the summit you will have to carry your bike and panniers for about 1km from one side of the mountain to the other.

Anyway if you fancy a go, here’s a route profile:
