Tendurek Dagi is a moderate-sized shield volcano located about 35 miles (55 km) southwest of Ararat, and about the same distance northeast of Lake Van. Like Ararat, Tendurek is located just a few miles west of the Turkey-Iran border, but there do not appear to be any restrictions on climbing or skiing on Tendurek at this time. The best access is from the Trans-Asian Highway which passes just to its north heading west from Dogubayazit, where several smaller roads branch south towards Tendurek.


More photos and info about routes, access, etc. may be added in the future ...
