Argeos – the ancient Latin name for Mount Ercyes in Kayseri, Turkey where the charter was finalised in June, 2005. Being aware of the importance and grandeur of mountain landscapes the Access and Conservation Commission, at the instigation of Stefano Tirinzoni of the CAI, has produced the following simple guidelines for sustainable mountain tourism in countries where mountain tourism is in its infancy.

The guide covers the following key areas: Understanding and protecting the environment, preserving cultural identity and tourism in the mountains.
