What clothing to pack (Nemrut)?

Hi,

We will be doing the Nemrut Dagi summit next weekend.

How cold will it be at the top?

What to pack?

Fleece I guess. Gloves, hat?

Long Johns??

Sneakers or trekking boots?

Thankful for advise!

I went in September and just took a sweater and a hat for the top. It's not like climbing Everest. You don't need special trekking clothes. I even saw a Turkish woman climbing in high heels.

The steps - from the kiosk to the lines of statues - are made of rough stone and it takes about 20 minutes for the climb. Trekking boots are not needed but high heels would be inappropriate - wear comfortable footwear. It is cold at the top and the wind makes it feel even chillier so a fleece/windproof jacket plus some sort of headgear should suffice, you can always put your hands in your pockets for warmth.

Ok, I thought it was like at least an hour to walk...

Are we talking about the same Nemrut Dag? The tomb of Antiochos with tumbled statues, to the north of Kahta? If so, the walk from the car park plus climb up the steps will take half an hour at the most. I have seen people walking from lower down the hill, perhaps from a pansiyon, in which case it would certainly take longer, it depends on your starting point - I had assumed that you would be taking transport to the car park as the road is fine for wheeled vehicles - though bumpy (cobbled) on the last stretch.
