Walk Overview / Highlights - A long climb out of Olympos, visit to upper olympos ruins and a steady descent down to AdrasanThis is one of the classic Lycian Way walks. It starts amid the ruins of the ancient Lycian city of Olympos which dates back over 4,000 years. Some other walks start here with a guided tour of the city. Today you will need to get on with the walking! The route heads out of the valley in which Olympos is situated with a short climb through the tombs of the necropolis. Soon the trail levels into a lovely goat track that rises steadily along the side of a canyon. At the head of the canyon you enter a dense and shady forest of red barked “strawberry trees” (Arbutus). This is the start of a long and steady climb to a pass at 690m. At the pass a disused shepherds hut now serves as a cafe serving fresh juices, tea and coffee. Above the pass are the ruins of an extensive fortified encampment. Normally lunch is on the pass followed by a visit to the ruins. The route down passes through a series of valleys with a stream at their bases. This leads to the heart of Adrasan’s agricultural area and passes between orchards, farmhouses and greenhouses. The route to the hotel takes you past the river at the northern end of Adrasan beach, where you can take a well earned drink sitting on pontoons in the river.From Olympos City Back To Hotel Transfer Times (Out / In) 20mins / 0mins (ends at the hotel)Distance 18km Duration 5.5- 6hrs Max Height 690/750m TotalAscent 740/800m Total Descent 720/780mTerrain A long steady ascent on narrow goat tracks steep in places follwoed by a steady and gentle descent again mostly on goat tracks which are rocky in places.
