Bolkar Mountains

Continuing the line of summits in a Southeasterly direction, the Bolkar Mountains are bounded by the Göksu river to the West and the Pozanti river to the East.The Northern part of the mountains lies in Nigde province while the Southern peaks rise in Mersin province. These mountains exhibit interesting geological characteristics. Made of sedimentary material such as limestone and dolomites, the range reveals excellent examples of nappes, or folds in the layers of rocks. There are vast formations of karst as well as landscapes that reveal the effects of glacier and water erosion.
