As part of a day trip which took in several sites: inc. Saklikent, we visited this site. It's extremely ancient, and was built by the peaceful people the Likkians. The whole area is part of the Likkian (Lycian) Way, a part of which we hiked in our 1st week of our hiking holiday. There's a very simple set up for... More

Nice little ruin to help burn off a big lunch doesn't take long to get to the top but the views are great and the breeze is welcomed.

Having been to ruins at Letoon, Xanthos and Patara, Tlos was the icing on the cake! Arriving at Tlos there is car parking alongside a restaurant which doesn't charge unreasonably for a drink and has a nice clean toilet too! It's so reasonable to get into the Tlos ruins that it almost feels like it's free. It can be a... More

To get there is a nice drive through small towns; you get to see people hoeing in fields, go up a mountainous road. From afar, Tlos bears fascinating columned caves near the summit. Those were a necropolis for the best families. Above and below are the usual public places. There's been very little reconstruction. The views from the mountaintop are... More

Excellent day out. Be advised wear a hat as you have to walk up to the tombs in the blazing sun & no cover. Well worth it a must see.Bring your camera !!!!

A good guide is essential to understand the importance of this site. It involved a lot of walking and steepish climbing but it was well worth it,We loved the views from the top of the hill!

If you like history and ruins this is worth doing. If you don't, it's still worthwhile just for the view! Path to the top a bit tricky, so not for those with limited mobility.

the views from the top are amazing. If you like a bit of history defiantly worth going. We left the guide as they did go on a bit and in the heat it was a bit too much. we explored it on our own and learnt just as much reading the information boards and got round in half the time.

Travelled there with a small group and enjoyed what I saw ....which I'm sorry to say wasn't very much. The steepness and very uneven paths, coupled with my arthritis, made it a short visit. My wife really enjoyed it though and said the climb was well worth the effort. I had to make do with a cooling bottle of Efes... More

Up to 2011 in and around this area was a corn field used by the local villagers. They have unearthed some significant statues intact and complete with their heads which is a rare thing as most statues around are often found with missing heads. You can see these statues in the museum in Fethiye. It is a fairly small site... More
