A very high inactive volcanic mountain, Mount Hasan stands just next to the famous Salt Lake (Tuzgölü). In climbing society, it is considered one of the few mountains which is more dangerous in summer time than winter. The reason is the snow! Because the snow fills the sharp rocky chasms and makes it easier to climb. However, the winds make the surface iced up and give the climbers some hard times. The name suppose to come from the tomb of a holy man called Hasan, which lies on the top!
