Lycian Way; Faralya – Ovacık

Lycian Way

Ovacık is the last point of the Lycian Way, officially. Yet sure it can be the start depending on where you start.

For the last 2 days, I was just exploring the main path and the alternative paths to the villages and to the BEACHES! The main path is around the ridges of the hills next to the sea, yet there are the sub-paths that go down to the beaches on this part of the Lycian Way.

Anyway, today is the last day of 3 days of trekking to Ovacık.

Today I wake up at Faralya.

I just made a quick breakfast on the view of the Butterfly Valley then head to the path.

Today, I’m gonna climb 500 meters and reach the point farthest from the seaside. Then come down to the lowland of Ovacık, Fethiye and Ölüdeniz. A 15 kilometres walk in 6 hour, and the maximum elevation of 775 meters.

The walk is mostly in the red pine and larch forests.

In the end, here is Ölüdeniz. I would say, I got a pretty exited when I first see the Ölüdeniz from the path. It’s so good.

Ölüdeniz is a natural wonder and is a type of swell.
