Hasan was just an amazing host. The whole experience was friendly and natural. It's some friends hanging out, hiking for a bit, and looking for fun things to do and delicious food to eat. This is for people who like things tailored to them (we stopped a few times to get coffee/tea because of my jet lag) or to go with the flow (we stayed with Hassan from 7 am till midnight, and got to meet his friend and learn about her). It was up to us to do ATV or paragliding, and where to do it (Hassan didn't have pre-made deals with vendors, which made me trust him more). We chose where and what to eat (Hassan picked once and the food was amazing). All in all, just a great experience with a friend. This isn't a formal, guided hike like you'd get in the US. This is the warmth and flexibility of the middle east.

Don’t skip the chance to meet Hasan for the wonderful mountain trekking experience,he’s a kind of an empath person who is willing to make your time & trip utmost enjoyable. Pick up & driving up till the peak & dropping me back till my stay,grand turkish breakfast & drinks was an add on in this value,group of 3 to 4 people will be more enjoyable. I just felt like an aladdin carpet is taking me up to the snowy peak,I thought I’ll be too exhausted by the end but Hasan made it very comfortable all the way. I wish to spend one more day with Hasan to experience mountain trekking & the nature during summer visit.
