The Lycian Way is a 509 km, 25-day way-marked footpath around the coast of Lycia in southern Turkey, from Fethiye to Antalya. The trail consists mainly of old footpaths and mule trails, often hard and stony underfoot, not suitable for mountain bikes. Lying between the coast and mountains, it often has steep gradients. It was researched, designed and waymarked by Kate Clow, a British/Turkish amateur historian, in 1999. Turkey’s first long-distance walking route, it was made in order to identify and protect some of Turkey’s old roads.
In 2014 there was added a new leg of the trail going from the JoSiTo camp in Geyikbayiri to Çitdibi. This new hike is a great mountain stage. It passes the 'Geyiksivresi' (1750m) and two acient citys (Trebenna and Topelia).
More informations about the Lycian Way and the guidebook can you find on the webpage of Kate Clow

There are unique mountains arround Çitdibi, rising up from seelevel up to almoust 3000m altitute. You can find beautyful wildness and incredable views hiking and climbing on this mountains.
