Its been quite some time since i did a blog post and since i have more time on my hands now the summer season is coming to a close I thought I had better get back to doing them again.

I will try to do a blog post on a weekly basis .. that way you wont  get bored with my ramblings and i can find more things to write about.

Today's blog post is about a walk I did recently to Kayakoy and  to the Lycian Tombs which are on the other side of the valley to the Ghost Town.

I started the walk in Hisaronu  near to the Liberty Hotel Complex and made my way through the forest track towards Kayakoy.
It takes about an hour to do the walk and the track brings you out on the main road from Hisaronu to Kayakoy just before the horse ridding stables. Its an easy walk, most of it in the cool shade of the forest.

When on the main road turn right and follow the road past the ridding stables and keep going until you reach the back  road that goes from Kayakoy to Fethiye. At this point you will see a sign pointing to Kaya Wine House .. go in this direction and when you get to the Wine House walk past it along the track. After walking about a kilometer past the Wine House you will come to the Tombs.

If you walk past the tombs the track continues. Along this track you will see a direction sign pointing you towards Fethiye ..
6km`s. If you take this path you will then be walking along the cobbled Roman Road that will bring you into Fethiye above
Karagozler.

The above photo shows some of the free standing tombs and the tombs in the side of the mountain.

You can see more of the tombs here ..

A dolmus, bus, goes through to Kayakoy from Fethiye via Ovacik and Hisaronu hourly in the summer season should you feel you don't want to do the walk through the forest from Hisaronu.
