The original and authorised guidebook to the stages of Evliya Çelebi’s pilgrimage itinerary to Mecca in 1671, as he travelled from Istanbul, via Hersek to İznik, Bursa, Kütahya, Afyonkarahisar, Uşak and beyond.

The book has all the information you need to plan your hike, bike ride or horseback adventure. It has detailed descriptions and times for each section of the route, altitude diagrams, and info about each place along the way. It contains detailed descriptions of the villages and towns that Evliya visited, and includes a folding map inside the back cover.

The book is also a mine of information on Evliya and his life and times, and allows you to rediscover ancient Ottoman ways through the countryside. You will also encounter the horse sports of rahvan and cirit which still flourish in the region. The guidebook is complemented by updates to the route and GPS files downloadable from the website.
