Where to stay

There is heaps of places to stay in Geyikbayiri, Most people will stay at Josito as it is pretty cheap for long periods of more then one month but there is also Flying Goat Hostel which is just opposite Sarkit crag. Depends on which crag you want to climb at more often you can choose your pick. This are the top 6 guesthouse, camping places.

Another option is also to airbnb/ or stay in the city and rent a car to drive so you can get around. It works out to be about the same because staying in the city is cheaper.

Ethic

There are no restrictions aside from respecting the environment as the local government has been very tolerant and we don't want that to change. All bolting is stainless steel and not more than 10 years old. Between 20 to 30 new routes are opened every year and visitors are welcome to contribute to that with local advice.
