Suphan Dagi (Mount Süphan), an extinct volcano, is the third highest mountain in Turkey. It is located just north of Lake Van, Turkey's largest lake. The volcano's summit holds a snow-filled crater, but is generally broad and rugged from eons of erosion. The slopes, however, have retained much of their conal form, making the ascent of Suphan Dagi a straightforward one.
