The most impressive feeling in Erzurum is the height of the Palandoken surrounding the city. In case you are not familiar with the eastern part of Anatolia or any mountainous landscape you can easily feel as the mountain is following you in any move. The serene and distant attitude of Palandoken will totally differ when you will have the chance to go up there for skiing. This is a life-time experience Anatolia presents for whom to appreciate…
