Phaselis Ruins
Between Tekirova & Kuzdere

Ruins located between Tekirova and Kuzdere.


Well-preserved ruins that give an excellent sense of how it might have been in its own era.


Settled by Rhodians in the 7th century B.C. and became part of the Lycian Union about 500 years later. The aqueduct is particularly notable and the main road in striking.


Notable sights at the ruins include Hadrian’s Gate, the theatre, and the aqueduct.

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!
