Lycian Way

We arrived in the little village of Karakoy and stayed at this hotel. A short trek took us up to a ghost town from the 1920's when after the Turkish War of Independence, Greek villages in Turkey and Turkish villages in Greece exchanged lands. This Greek village was never occupied, however, due to rumors of haunting and it was never reoccupied.

Today will be our first day of walking the Lycian (Lykyan in Turkish) 17 km. I will find out how well I can keep up with these experienced hikers!


  1. I bet both you and Marlene will do just fine. The tougher question is how many days of walking. More importantly, just enjoy the journey, and bring us home good stories!

  2. Marlene has decided not to walk. It is just too difficult for her. She is enjoying staying at the hotel during the day.
