Olympos Ruins
Between Adrasan & Çıralı

Located just south of Çıralı.


The Lycian Way passes directly through the ruins, which have an admission fee.


Very impressive ruins (much of it in an unrestored state) of the ancient Lycian city of Olympos. Olympos was established around the first century. The ruins are extensive with lots to discover (with much of it still over-grown). Many of the best ruins are hidden away and needing some exploration on your part.


Many of the more notable ruins have explanatory signboards, often with English text in addition to Turkish.

How You Can Help

Trail research is never actually done. Here’s some of what we’re looking for:
✅   More photos! Ideally with geo-location information in the metadata. In addition to using some photos on Trekopedia, we add them to our internal reference database which significantly helps us with trail research. The more photos, the better! If you are willing to share your collection with us, we’d be incredibly grateful. Let us know and we’ll arrange a transfer.

✅   Points of interest. Help us identify (and geo-locate) accommodations, attractions, restaurants, markets, trail waypoints, confusing or problematic junctions, difficult or hazardous places, water sources, and so on. 

✅   Tips & recommendations. Share your thoughts with other hikers.
In addition to the above, please see this article for information on more general ways you can help. Thanks!
