The Toros (Taurus) Mountains

The Toros (Taurus) Mountains

The Toros Mountains are the western most branch of the great mountain chain that stretches across all of Asia – the Himalayan mountain belt. The Turkish section of this massive mountain range follows the southern border of Anatolia and it is made up of four major sections, the Western, Central, Southern and Southeastern Toros ranges. The highest peaks rises out of the Central and Southeastern branches, a stretch of mountains which are rugged, magnificent and arduous to climb.
