For those without a car, navigating to Radar Hill or Candir Hill can be challenging. While hitchhiking might be an option, the availability of fellow travelers could be limited. Taxis may be hesitant to traverse the dirt road. In such cases, reaching out to the tourist information office, municipality, or local headman for assistance proves to be a practical solution. For instance, contacting the Çandır Headquarters provided valuable insights about the road to Candir Hill during our visit.
