Efeler Way is designed so that hikers/trekkers will reach an accommodation village at the end of each day. There is at least one Efeler Way friendly establishment in each of these villages. On the other hand, in each village, a symbol that was accepted by the local people and reflected the identity of the village was chosen and designed as the village seal. This seal system was implemented to set a goal for Efeler Way hikers/trekkers to make walking the path more attractive, to create a memory of the hiking, and on the other hand, to promote the natural beauties, historical and cultural values, and local products of the Efeler Way villages more effectively. If they wish, hikers/trekkers may obtain an Efeler Way Passport* from local friendly establishments, or Efeler Way official social media accounts associated with this website and have the relevant village logo stamped on their passports in the villages they reach.


Efeler Yolu passports are handmade special products. Each passport has a unique serial code for the individual. This number is manually stamped on each passport through a special thumbwheel switch and is unique to the individual. The village seal is applied wet to the relevant page of the passport by the Efeler Way friendly establishments in the relevant village. Hikers/trekkers who visit Efeler Way villages can have the village seals applied to their passports. However, individuals who manage to collect all the village seals and prove that they have walked the entire route and passed each stage from beginning to end by creating electronic traces in WIKILOC, FATMAP, ALLTRAILS or similar applications will have the Efeler Way gold seal stamped on the last page of their passports. The golden seal is a special Efeler Way stamp and is the final application of the entire seal system. Hikers/trekkers who request the golden seal submit their electronic traces via or and, if approved, mail their passports to the address below** via a courier. Passports with gold seals are sent back to the user via a prepaid cargo.


With these features, the Efeler Way passport and seal system is a first in the world.
