When talking about the landscapes of the Middle East, people may think of spellbinding landscapes with unrivalled seas of sand dunes and palm-fringed lakes in desert. Travelers can walk along Turkey’s grand coastline, visit urbane metropolis of Istanbul, trek on camels in the deserts of Iran and Turkmenistan, or switch to hiking when entering the more mountainous countries.
