One of the most satisfying and spectacular walks on the Lycian Way is undoubtebly this one.
Starting up from Kabak village on a good mule track, the path rises into a seemingly impassable valley. The path goes past an area called Delikkaya (the holey rock) which after a heavy rainstorm has water spouting from many hundreds of holes in the cliff.
Arriving at the stunning watershed of Alinca, you will want to stop for a coffee at Catchy Camping, run by Özkan, probably visualy the best coffee anywhere!
The path below Alınca, above ‘Paradise Bay’ is as tricky as it is spectacular, not for the faint hearted. If you do not like walking close to the edge you can follow the asphalt road for a few km instead.
You pass the famous slab, and then drop down to the Ottoman cistern in the terraces at the end of Bogazici village.
From here you climb to the village of Gey on the ridge. For a great welcome stay in Dumanoglu pansiyon!
The Slab. Atop a 200m high cliff!1
