Start: 07:15 (starting from Finike)
At Yatikardic region people keep some of the cisterns active and clean, however if there’s no one around it would be hard to draw water from the cisterns. Besides this, if your walk is planned by the end of summer, many of these cisterns will be dry after a long, hot summer.
You may carry a few meters long durable string to draw water and use disinfectant pills if required. There may be some cisterns which have not been sheltered by sticks and twigs, that means an animal would have been fell and died in it. You may need to carry all your food with you. On the trail there’s no grocery, market, village or even a fruit tree. At the Yatikardic region there’s a settlement but we saw nobody during our walk in April.
The ones proposing to walk from Demre to Finike may camp at Alakilise during the first day and camp in Belos for the second night if do not want to stay at a pension in Finike town center.
