Winter Festival Over The Truck Tires

28/29.Jan.2012 Camlihemsin - Rize / Turkey

 

Ayder plateau is natural wonder over the mountains of northern of Turkey. This is my second departure after “the summer festival” and “bullfights” organized in June. This year, the fifth of the winter festival was held.You do not need an expensive ski teams for the public to enjoy skiing. They easily ski over the truck tires or nylon covers on the snow. This does not prevent the excitement although some accidents. People danced during two days their own dance called "Horon" hand in hand with traditional "Tulum" music over the mountains on the snow and ice. "Tulum" is the traditional musical instrument of Camlihemsin people. It is made of goat skin and covered with colored clothes and ornaments. It has two thin pipes and eachone has five holes on them. Tulum = (Bagpipe)
