Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Çamlıca Tepesi), aka Big Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Büyük Çamlıca Tepesi) to differentiate from the nearby Little Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Küçük Çamlıca Tepesi), is a hill in Üsküdar district of Istanbul, Turkey. Situated on the Asian part of the city at 268 m (879 ft) above sea level, Çamlıca Hill has a panoramic view of the southern part of Bosphorus and the mouth of Golden Horn.


The hill is a popular visitor attraction. There is historical-designed teahouses, cafes and a restaurant inside a public park with monumental trees, flower gardens and fountains, run by the Metropolitan Municipality.
A television and several radio masts and towers stand atop the hill. To remove the visual pollution caused by the masts, the construction of a 365.5 m (1,199 ft)-high television tower with a revolving restaurant at 202.5 m (664 ft) and two observation decks has been projected by the Ministry of Transport, Maritime and Communication in October 2014.

  • My favorite place in Istanbul. great view. but check the weather before you plan to go there. great scenes.  more »
  • What a wonderful view of Istanbul from the Asian side. We went in the night time and all the lights of the city just looked amazing. It was cold, but worth the visit.  more »
  • Lovely park with great views over Istanbul and the Bosphorus. We visited in December but the gardens still looked great. Perfect place to get out of the busy city and enjoy peaceful surroundings.  more »
