The history attached makes it magical. We ate at restaurants by the river which enabled us to gaze upon their magnificence. Lit up at night. Truly romantic

We came here on a day trip from Marmaris on Orcia 2 boat and came up the river in a smaller boat. These tombs are a wonderful sight and amazing how civilisation cut out them from the rock face.Would have like to have got closer and had a guide book though our guide on the way back did stop to...

Impressive tombs carved into the rock face. The more columns the tomb has, the wealthier the person buried there was. These can be viewed close up via Jeep Safari or passed by on the boat trip to the beach. .

Visit with a guide book or on a guided visit to learn a bit about the place. If you have time, you can try to walk till there.

Beautiful views of the tombs from Dalyan, to get a close up view you need to wander around the cemetery on that side of the river, great to see a different perspective of the tombs. You can get a little rowing boat across to the other side for 5liras and there is a great little pancake place for refreshments.

These tombs really are a wonderful sight and remind you that, even thousands of years ago, people were more advanced technically than we think. If you want a closer look at these tombs, rather than just the view from across the river, it's worth getting the rowing boat over. You alight at a Turkish lady's small eatery, very homespun and...

A place full of history and legends, ask your guide for legends about ancient city was here and about funeral habits.
