YOROZ'S ATTRACTION INCREASED

The construction of the observation deck at the summit point and the camellia works to be built along the hiking route continue. Yoroz City Forest, which has gained a new identity with the works carried out, is appreciated by its visitors.

With the road opened as a result of the work we carried out in cooperation with our General Directorate of Forestry in Yoroz, we facilitated the first aid interventions in case of emergency and the intervention of the fire brigade against fires. At the same time, we brought this road opened to bicycle safari tour activities. In addition, we have turned Yoroz into an adventure space, a place where you can spend pleasant times with your family, with the improvement of walking paths, stairs and sitting benches.
Now we bring Yoroz to mountaineering and rock climbing.
