Cilo Dağı (Kurdish: Çiyayê Cîlo; Armenian: Ջողա լեռ) is the third highest mountain in Turkey. It is 4,116 m (13,504 ft) high and lies in the Hakkâri Dağları chain, located in the eastern Taurus, in the district of Yüksekova of the Hakkâri Province.[1][2]

Description

Cilo Dağı is part of Cilo mountain range, which is 30 km (19 mi) long.[3] The Uludoruk (4,135 m (13,566 ft)), located in the immediate vicinity (4 km (2.5 mi) away), is the second highest mountain in Turkey. In 1984, the area was closed to civilians. It was not until 2002 that a team of mountaineers was authorized to climb again the Cilo mountains.[4]
