With the passage of time, nature lovers began to notice Hazım Dağlı Natural Park, which is located at an elevation of 1,604 metres in the Yaprakl district of Ankr. Visitors to the natural park, which is bordered by yellow pine and meadows, receive a flavour of the outdoors.
The Hazım Dağlı Natural Park, located on the Yaprakl plateau in Ankr’s Yaprakl district, has become a popular tourist attraction. As the weather warms, residents go to the natural park at an elevation of 1,604 metres to appreciate nature. Residents can enjoy the landscape by cycling, hiking, or picnicking at the 126-hectare nature park. Camping is particularly popular in Hazm Dal Natural Park, which is surrounded by golden pines and meadows.
According to Seyit Akçay, a citizen who said that the coronavirus stopped them from leaving the house and that they only became interested in nature after the pandemic ended:
“We could not go out to picnics and recreation areas. We couldn’t go out without a mask, and we couldn’t taste it with a mask. In recent months, we have taken off our masks. We can go to natural areas and see natural wonders. We came to have a picnic, we have a barbecue with our family. Hazım Dağlı Natural Park is one of the most beautiful places of Çankırı. It has an air like the Black Sea climate. There are houses in front of us. I’m very happy here, I come back all the time.”
Büşra Kömürcü, who went to the natural park with her friends, said:
“This process has been very good for us university students. We were constantly spending time between the café, the dorm and the school. Right now, these areas are very good for us to play volleyball and fly kites. This is a process that everyone should appreciate.”
