This is a 516-kilometer path that goes all the way from Antalya to Fethiye. It hides a range of archeology treasures that you may only see here. Considering the considerable distance of this trekking path, many individuals complete different sections separately, rather than finishing it all in one go. However, if this is something you want to do, you may choose to stay in local hotels or camping sites so that you can get some rest in between.
