When we were children, we used to see tourists coming to our village between April and November. A German tour agency used to come to our village and set up a camp. Seeing this gave us an idea, we thought we could make a living by providing services to those visitors. Our first investment was a tea garden,which we opened in 1986. Then ,we opened Sultan Guest House in 1992.
Between 1986 and 2000,a variety of birds and wildlife was very rich, but a dam was opened in 2000.The opening of this dam and careless farming brought drought for the next ten years to Sultan Marshes.
As the Sultanbirding team, we passed through those years with great difficulties. We had to make the best with whatever was left to us.
Since 2009, with the opening of Gıcık Tunnel and good weather, Sultan Marshes turned back to its glory. Our visitors' number begun to increase. Scientists, TV crews and most important, bird lovers came back to this wonderful wetland.
Along with all of its values, Sultan marches is a window through which we can observe the natural life, a jewel where we can keep the beauty we have in front of us for the next generations and the place where water turns into life.
Its visitors are increasing with each passing day. As the Sultanbirding team, we are grateful to welcome you to this extraordinary place.
