Picture Postcard Pokut

Pokut. Above the clouds.

We stayed in the high village of Pokut at 1900m for one night, in a cosy wood cabin guesthouse called Plato ‘da Mola. You only have to stumble out onto the front terrace to get this superlative view. They told us that they only get about 8 days of full sunshine a year and so I felt quite privileged.

The photo was taken first thing in the morning, and it gives the impression that we are above the clouds. By afternoon, the clouds rose to engulf the entire village and its surrounds. The mist was so thick that you couldn’t see anything more than a foot away. There was nothing to do after that but read and chill out and wait for dinner.

  1. How in the world did you ever find this place to begin with? Such a phenomenal place and that cloud layer is so spooky, but beautiful. I clicked on the website link just to learn more about the village (of course, I couldn’t understand anything there, but the photos were great to look at). You visit the most interesting places and meet the most interesting people. I’m so glad to be following along on your travels 😀

    1. Yes, isn’t it just amazing! It wasn’t all down to me though. The Journey Anatolia photography trip is put together by very special people who look out for just these sorts of places.

    1. Yes, people live in the village. They had the foresight to bury all their electricity cables under the ground so you don’t see the highways of wires criss-crossing the rooftops that you see in other villages.
