Full description
Discover Termessos, an ancient Pisidian city built at an altitude of 1,000 meters on the south-west side of Solymos Mountain. The site is located 30 kilometers north-west of Antalya. On this 6-hour tour you’ll also discover a variety of rare plant and animal species in and around the site, which are under protection of the Termessos National Park. Concealed by a multitude of wild plants and bounded by dense pine forests, the ruins have an untouched appearance, creating a distinct atmosphere that differs from other ancient city sites. Wearing sturdy footwear is essential, as you’ll be exploring the area on foot. To access parts of the site there is some fairly strenuous uphill walking and climbing involved. Some of the popular sights you’ll see are the lower city walls, the theater, temples, and a fire lookout tower. It’s well worth the walk to see the spectacular theater, a well-preserved site that was constructed in the Greek style with seating for around 4,000 spectators. Perched precipitously on the hillside, with incredible views of the surrounding mountain peaks, it is the most dramatic feature of Termessos. You’ll continue on to Duden Waterfalls, where the mountain streams that come down from the peaks reach the Mediterranean in a series of spectacular cascades from the rocky cliff tops.

Wonderful excursion in a breathtaking landscape. Our guide explained and showed us a lot and despite English we understood everything. The food at the waterfall was great and the drink prices were absolutely okay. Unfortunately, the excursion is rarely booked, which is probably due to the general state of tourism. Sturdy shoes and a bit of fitness are essential, the facility is high up on the mountain and the path is steep. All in all, an excursion that you should definitely do.

The trip was very nice, a little hike and visit the ruins! Lunch was perfect, we could choose which dish we would like! Unfortunately the English of our guide was not very good, and there was no additional information on the way to the ruins or on the drive.
