It’s a visual feast to see Mount Süphan and the poppy flowers blooming in Bitlis’ Ahlat neighbourhood together.
The third highest mountain in Turkey, Mount Süphan, is located on the boundary of the districts of Adilcevaz in Bitlis, Erciş in Van, and Patnos in Ar. It is stunning throughout the year. The flowers are currently blooming atop Mount Süphan, which has snow on its summit during each of the four seasons and amazes people with its grandeur.
Nature photographers capture the distinctive panorama that develops with the integration of poppy fields and Mount Süphan while red poppy flowers are flowering in the fields on the Ahlat-Malazgirt route, generating magnificent landscapes.
Ahin Erefolu, a nature photographer, said he was pleased to incorporate the image of Mount Süphan with red poppy flowers and add original photographs to his archives. Poppy flowers formed the scenery with Mount Süphan. Erefolu exclaimed:
“This is a very delicious poppy field. We came across a breathtaking scene that contained yellow flowers, red and white poppies, and purple flowers. As you can see, Lake Van is in front of us, with the snow-capped Mount Süphan behind us. We most definitely invite our photography-loving friends to snap pictures here. It starts fresh each year during this time of year and lasts for an additional 10 days. I hope they see these wonders as well.”
