In The Black Tent Tours, we will try to know the cultural and historical entourage of Anatolian nomads by being a nomad and experience the same life they had lived during centıries,by walking o the paths they used, the pastures they go for feeding sheep and goats, stay nest to their encampments, listen to their legends and stories. Monumental cedar and juniper trees will surround us as well as karstic lakes and alpine grazes of over 2000 meters altitude. we will be uploading horses or donkeys with our belongings, and migrate in some days. We will be practicing how nomads were cooking, making bread, dyeing wool for making their famous rugs, learnd the basics of hand weaving together. It will be a very special experience to understand how nomads had built such an elegant culture in plain nature and learn about their practical solutions to be able to live in mountains. Moreover it will be possible for the participants to visit some Hellenistic, Lycian and Roman ancient sites to be able to understand the cultural infrastructure of the area in a wider and deeper meaning.
