The region and mountain is under coverage as National Park. There is wildlife around. Hunting is forbidden, therefore crowded colonies of deers, wild boars, chamoises, different birds, small mammals live here. The Mountain is only one hour drive from Antalya Airport and only 10 minutes from Kemer, a very famous holiday resort in Turkish Riviera. On the back of the mountain there are several more peaks and on the way also there are many rocky hills good for climbing.
