The mountains of the Ala Dag consist of five main valley systems;-
The Cimbar and Kayacik valleys; the Yedi Göl; the Emli and Siyirma valleys;
the Kokorot and Kara Göl valleys. 
Each valley is narrow and steep sided with many hanging valleys.
All have stunning walks and exciting climbs.
Due to its ease of access the Ala Dag is a popular region with mountaineers.
