Walking Through History in Turkey - Xanthos on the Lycian Way

Journal, 22 May, 2002: After several discussions at breakfast, including a conclave of 3 waiters with advice about local conditions, we took off on a hike towards Kirme, about 4 hrs according to the Lycian Way guidebook and 10 km. Nicely marked trail, ascending steadily to get around several headlands. Beautiful views back to Oludeniz, and down the beaches. Several tortoises on the trail, but not much other activity.

 Left at 9:10, reached cisterns at 10:10-10:30 (listed as 2 hrs), then trail leveled out at Kozagaciz, beautiful flowers. We took it easier, working our way around several more headlands & gullies, reaching the 8 km sign at 12:30, and 2 km further into Kirme about 12:50. (Elapsed time, 3:40 vs guidebook of 4:45). Lunch of fruit and snacks, then drop steeply down a canyon to the road that hugs the coast. The dirt road drops sharply, with spectacular views of azure coves and isolated beaches accessible only from the sea. Can see the route all the way back to Oludeniz, long, shadeless road dirt & asphalt
