There are several ways to travel the world: by plane, train, car, bus, bicycle, motorcycle ... Or on foot. And is that walking is the best way to know as much as possible the place you visit.
Man has been responsible for opening routes and roads in beautiful places. In some cases they are signposted and dedicated to the enjoyment of the hiker but, in many others, they have been created, simply, by necessity, being a place of passage for the locals who inhabit those lands.
Whether for commercial, necessity, or leisure reasons, the fact is that there are wonderful routes in this world we inhabit. Here you have a small list, totally subjective, of the best trekking I have done.
Lycian Route, Turkey
Considered by the prestigious The Times as one of the 10 best routes in the world, the Lycian Route go through something more than 500 km of Turkish soil in its Asian part.
It runs between the provinces of Mugla and Antalyain the region of Anatolia. It combines landscape beauty with history, both near and far.
Mountains up to 3000 meters high, Mediterranean pine forests, small fishing villages such as Fethiye or authentic tourist resorts such as Oludéniz, water coves of different blue tones that have nothing to envy to those we appreciate in the typical Caribbean postcards.
You will find a ghost town that was abandoned by the Greeks in the first half of the 20th century. In Kayaköy these forced emigrants settled down and would end up being exchanged for Turkish prisoners. Today, its cement houses appear here and there, scattered on the side of a hill.
But more amazed will leave you the ruins and tombs of Lycians (an ancient civilization that populated the area more than 2,300 years ago), Romans and Greeks, like the ones you'll find on the famous Mount Olympus.
The difficulty is medium and does not require technical preparation although you will have to be fit to go up and down ramps without stopping.
