We saw the Rock Tombs during our day long boat trip along the Dalyan river. Even from afar, these tombs looked beautiful. They were very large and elegant for tombs with intricate carvings on many of them. These were all carved on the cliff-sides of rocky hills.

We have seen these from our base in Calis so on an overcast day decided to go & see them. We took dolmus into centre of Fetiyhe then followed signs. We had been warned to watch our for people who want to take you there via a long route & then expect payment. It's a very steep climb someone said... More

This is so cool and something you have to see if you're coming to Fethiye. It doesn't cost much to go inside, but it's a lot of stairs so prepair to be tired! For me it was worth every step. In one thomb you can go inside and see. It's beautiful, but can be hard to find the way here.

We first went to Fethiye when we caught the dolmus to Saklikent and on arriving back in town we visited the market and saw the tombs on the hillside. I had really wanted to see them up close but as it was a very hot day and we had had two long hot dolmus rides, and walked along the gorge... More

Definitely a must see. The ancient tombs are very impressive and the mountain/bay views are amazing. I recommend walking to the tomb from the old town. Google maps gets you there. (Make sure you download the map street details when you have Wi-FI to save on data charges.) The walk is about 20 minutes, with a steady hill walking through... More

stunning, beautiful and in wonderful condition! reached mainly from Dalyan on a small boat from the harbour. Seeped in Lycian history these rock tombs lie slightly back from Dalyan river which winds itself to the sea at carreta carreta (turtle) beach or to Koygez lake on the other side.

May be difficult to find but certainly worth a visit. As well as the ancient tombs there are a number of walks you can take.
