Lycian Way Guide Book - Lycian Way "Step by Step"

Lycian Way Guide Book (first press will be in Turkish) will be available in two weeks time. The book is in print as of March 10th.

"Adım Adım" Lycian Way ("Step by step" in English) is a book that contain my notes and experiences. Will be available in bookstores and internet. 

Those who want to get the book can email me because it's not on the internet yet (altugsenel@gmail.com). I can send it by post.

Smaller you make the book, easier to carry. This is the smallest book in size with A2 map inside. 

I did not write this book considering it as a guide. I took care to prepare the contents who want to hike but cannot due to several reasons. I tried to contain its history, nature, pre-walking preparations, visuals and "step by step" routes by not over-weighting in bags and memories.

It contain QR codes, that make it able to access GPS data of each track and information about the accomodations. So I would like you to see this book as a "frequently asked questions", not just a guide.

Of course, the book contain an A2-size map I prepared

Why "Step By Step"?

This is why it's going to be a "step-by-step" series. This book is a beginning. Different countries and roads will be published as "step by step".

With love...

We collected Wastes on Lycian Way - November 2017

We decided to give a “heads up” to the people regarding the increasing pollution on Lycian Way. Pollution is mainly due to camping wastes, such as cans, brewages, water bottles and wet wipes.

We volunteered for this and collected wastes and garbages on a popular Lycian Way path, Karaoz-Gelidonya Lighthouse-Adrasan-Olympos-Cirali.

This was a two day organisation that everybody came to the starting point (Karaoz) by their own. We fixed the date and decided a meeting point and we were all there. This was an organisation open to everybody.

In nature, we all pay attention to our clothings, tents etc. But we have to focus on the fact that we carry food and cleaning supplies from the city to the nature and leave the wastes of them an the garbage cans in the settlements which is a few kilometers away.

During the two-day walk, we encountered campfire, wet wipes, cans and PET bottles burned on random camp fires.

Thank you very much for all those who had contribution in this beautiful synergy. We can manage good things together.

Meanwhile, we planted an olive and carob trees at Gelidonya Lighthouse that were the commemoriatives for this organisation. Do not forget to water it if you go there. But get the water from the lighthouse’s cistern which is not drinkable.


Karaoz. Let's begin to walk.

Too many wastes collected.

This was the waste collected only in 3 km.

On your way to Gelidonya Lighthouse (Karaoz-Adrasan) there seems no waste in the photo?? Not exactly like this if you come closer.

It's now time to collect the wastes on some parts of Lycian Way. As volunteers we will be gathering to collect them in November 2017.

We'll be sharing the details of the program soon. Probably in August. We keep you informed.
