With its broad vistas and dramatic, spare scenery, Eastern Turkey is like one vast national park. Summer is the best time to visit, as the region is high and mountainous, and given to late thaws and early snows. When the Mediterranean resort city of Antalya is engulfed in sticky summer heat, in Erzurum the air is dry and pleasant. The "capital" and largest city in the East is Erzurum. It has a university, big army base, airport, Palandöken ski area, and several fine Seljuk and Ottoman buildings. It's a good base for visits to the Kaçkar Mountains, Do?ubeyaz?t and Mount Ararat.
"Mount Nimrod," south of Malatya and north of Ad?yaman and Kâhta, is one of Turkey's most astounding sights: an artificial mountaintop framed by two great temples littered with colossal statues of gods—and one megalomaniac king. It is best to give at least a week to see all that East Turkey has to offer.
