Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Let’s delve into more details below.

Yanartas (Chimera)

One of the most fascinating and awe-inspiring stops of the Kemer Olympos and Yanartas excursion is the Chimera, known as Yanartas in Turkish, which translates to “flaming rock.” This name originated from the mythical fire-breathing hybrid creatures with body parts from various animals.

While you won’t encounter any monsters, you will witness enduring flames that have burned for centuries. The Yanartas, a flaming rock, continues to burn due to an endless source of gas, defying natural conditions. This mystical wonder and beautiful scenery have served as a navigational point for ancient sailors.

Olympos Beach

Olympos Beach, a pristine pebble-covered beach stretching 4 km, offers a serene and awe-inspiring setting. Its relaxing ambiance, complemented by a pine forest along the shore and a National Park boasting rare flora, is sure to soothe your mind and soul. Additionally, medieval and antique ruins add to the allure of this beach. Keep an eye out for Caretta turtles as you may be fortunate enough to witness the miracle of life.

Mount Yanartas

Mount Yanartas is the site where Bellerophon defeated the Chimera, a mythical monster. It is where a hero emerged and a fiery monster was vanquished, leaving its flames behind, burning beneath the ground but visible on the surface. As mentioned earlier, the story behind Yanartas adds to its unique and captivating scenery.

The Lycian City of Olympos

Olympos holds significance for mythology enthusiasts, as it not only features the legend of the Chimera but also played a role in the Lycian City. In the 3rd century BC, Hephaestus (Vulcan), the god of fire, blacksmithing, metalworking, and craftsmanship, and husband of the beautiful Aphrodite, was the main deity of the Lycian City of Olympos. Special festivals were organized in his honor. The striking atmosphere and the ruins of magnificent buildings from the Lycian period still stand today, exuding their grandeur.
