Garipçe is a village that lies along Istanbul's Bosporus shoreline, a small, strange place between two mountains. The people of Garipçe.

Here are the departure times of the 25T bus which runs between Taksim (for example) and Sarıyer. It's a 20km, 2 hour jouney.
Travel Schedules
The villages of Sarıyer district include Rumelikavağı, , Rumelifeneri, Demirciköy, Zekeriyaköy, Bahçeköy, Kilyos (Kumköy), Uskumruköy, Gümüşdere, Kısırkaya and of course Garipçe.

Sarıyer is the northernmost district of Istanbul, Turkey, on the European side of the city. With a long shore along the water, the district boasts both a beautiful coastline and a lush forest. The Sarıyer district is a huge area consisting of the villages on the European side of the Bosphorus and well worth exploring.

Apart from Garipçe it’s also worth visiting Rumelihisarı, the huge fortress on the waterfront built during the Ottoman conquest of Istanbul. There are a number of cafes and fish-sandwich places by the Bosphorus and in the summer Rumelihisarı is the venue for a series of popular open-air concerts. In this area you will also see so many yalı (traditional wooden seaside houses).
