Walk Overview / Highlights - Learn the history & Lycia & Olympos and vist the flames at ChimeraRoute 2 Spine Mountain - Evening Flames - After lunch, we head inland to the base of Omurga Dağ (Spine Mountain) where a steady ascent takes you into the foothills of Omurga Dağ. Our route starts on a dirt road that climbs out of Olympos and then becomes a goat track trail leading to a shepherd’s hut in fields above a deep canyon. From here a tractor trail and loggers trails lead us past farmhouses and pommegranate orchards. Then a section of winding goat tracks takes us through the forest past a spring and on to ancient terraces where you can find the remains of a land owner’s tomb placed witha panoramic view of Mt. Olympos. The trail then heads down to the road to Çiraliwhere you will find a small cafe for tea or juice. You then cross the road and follow a tractor trail that heads up to Ulupinar after several river crossings. This is a very varied route with some lovely scenery and lots of interest.The plan from here on depends on what time the sun sets. When the days are short we will head straight down to the base of the flames by car, visit the flames and then head back to Ulupinar for supper. When the days are longer we take an early evening meal at Havuz Başi restaurant before going to visit the flames.
