Beautiful- they are lit up at night too. You have a great view of these on a boat trip on the river - great view from Tezcan Hotel

A must see place. It feels strange to think that people have done these many centuries ago. The river with its beautiful view is nearby, Kaunos Antique City is 5 mins by car. But you cannot climb near the tombs unfortunately and there is not any historical explanations or anything around.

We and probably most visitors viewed this interesting site from the river boats or hotels that line the river. It was a perfect way to see the tombs in the mountain.

Beautiful views on the tombs from various places: from Dalyan, walking to Kaunos, from the boat if you go to Iztumu. This all gives nice pictures. But there is no way to approach the tombs.

You cannot get close to the tombs because of their situation but they are facinating and are beautifully lit up at night.

Great views of tombs as you go downstream on boat tour. Our guide gave us background info on the history of the tombs and Kaunos. Incredible views!

Visit one of the restaurants that front the river to enjoy the views of them. Watch the river traffic - relax!

Well at first look is some stones on the mountain. But its part of Dalyan culture. If you go with a good guide he'll explained that this Lycian tombs are related with family members and some sort of worship to higher gods. Its part of the boat ride and its another symbol of faith and worship

The tombs are amazing!!! they are lit up at night, and it is brilliant to see these tombs, as they are 3000 years old.
