    mountain ranges

    Türkiye is a mountainous country, with mountain ranges in nearly every region. This is thanks in part to the tectonic plate activity in Anatolia, which over centuries has formed dramatic mountain ranges. Some of the prominent mountain ranges include the Taurus Mountains in the southwest, the Pontic Mountain Range (including the Kaçkar Mountains) in the northeast, the Yıldız Mountains in the northwest, and the Sultan Mountains in the west. Certain mountains within ranges are well known for geological and historical reasons, including Mt. Erciyes, Mt. Nemrut, Babadağ Mountain, Uludağ Mountain, and Mt. Ararat.

    Mountain ranges in Türkiye:

    Taurus Mountains (Mediterranean Coasts)
