Kaliadem is one of the areas that was badly damaged during the eruption in 2010. It used to be a populated area until the hot cloud and lava attacks shattered the area.
Nowadays people go up there as part of the lava tour. The commonly visited areas are the bunker and the former house of Mbah Maridjan, the former spiritual guardian of the mountain. The weather is really nice up there but remember that from time to time the volcano still erupts. It's advised that you keep yourself alert and always try going down the mountain when danger is near.

Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.
Despite not using an engine, paragliders flight can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters.
Bu fotoğraf eski Antakya evlerinin olduğu Affan mahallesinden. Evlerin bir kısmı iyi durumda. Kafe veya otel olarak kullanılıyor. Ama büyük kısmının durumu kötü. Sokaklar daracık. Sokak ortasında ufak bir su kanalı var ve Asi'ye doğru hafifçe meğilli. Antakya'da yağmur başlayınca kolay kolay kesilmezmiş. Su sorununu bu şwkilde çözmüşler. Ama artık sokakların nerdeyse hepsine beton dökülmüş. Tamamen değişmeden görmek lazım. #anıyakala#antakya#turkey#türkiye#ecotourism#baskarota#gezi#seyahat#tatil#travelblog#travelawesome#travel
