Hamlet located on the plateau after the climb up Babadağ from Ovacık.



Water is available here and there’s usually a café open.


Just after the hamlet on the way to Kirme is a large rock field above which towers a shorn-off cliff face – the result of a major (and deadly!) earthquake in the 1950s. The exposed cliff face overlooking the rock field today is still ‘raw’ from the massive rockslide. It’s an oddly beautiful yet haunting site, especially if conditions are foggy!


It isn’t unusual to see horses wandering freely in the area of the village.
