Lycian Way.  Ovacik - Faralya ( Butterfly Valley) 15km

The official start of the Lycian way is from here in Ovacik! 

Start to walk gently uphill on a forest road with wonderful picture opportunities of Oludeniz and St Nicholas Island, before the old mule path begins at a gully. 

Rising with views that improve every step of the way, you eventually arrive in Karaagac, with it's lovely spring and views up to the summit of Babadagi (Father mountain)

Follow the Forest road for some distance here and climb to the pass above Kirme. 

Descend on asphalt for a km or so before the descent on good footpath to Faralya begins. There are many springs on this route. 

Spend the night in Faralya with unparalled views of Butterfly valley, the fethiyhe and Datca peninsulas and on a clear day across to the Greek island of Rhodes.
