Traditional yearly Sufi Trail Hiking Caravan to the light.
Special opportunity to hike with the creators of the Sufi Trail. We will start in Yalova and hike to the tomb of Rumi in Konya. It’s to promote the pilgrimage lifestyle and also to submerge ourselves into the deeper meaning of the Sufi Trail. We start on the 5th of May 2023 in Yalova and end our 40 days hiking caravan on the 15th of June 2023.
We will for about 20 days camp outside. The philosophy of this caravan is to revive the old way of travelling on foot, to Konya. Everyone can join the caravan and pay for their own daily expenses. This can be food, accommodation, and other costs.
As it’s a camping caravan bring your tent, only in cities we will have simple accommodations if needed. We like to leave a positive impression on the people along the Sufi Trail, this means we can have special cleaning days when we pick up rubbish along our way. Also, there will be a few marking days when we make road signs with red and white paint. The green is for the green Sufi arrow.
This caravan is initiated to get easy access to start hiking this wonderful Anatolian landscape in the safety of the ancient tradition to travel together.
Together we make a caravan to Rumi!
Your fellow pilgrims speak English, Turkish, and Dutch.
