Bingol Stories and Tips

Army law

As I said in the overview, Bingol is one of centres of partisan war between Turks and Kurdish people. Also today, there is a law which says that from 6 o'clock in the evening till 6 o'clock in the morning no one is allowed to move on the streets and roads without army permission. When I was hitchhiking through Hamamlar, suddenly at about half past 6 p.m. we were stopped by a tank staying in the middle of the road. So we had to spend night in Hamamlar. There are also many Jandarma (border police) checks all around this place.

Been to this destination?
