The historical Lycian Way, one of Turkey’s most important hiking routes that nature lovers want to walk, has been numbered and turned into a safe walking route by JAK, the search and rescue team affiliated with the Muğla Provincial Gendarmerie Command.
To prevent accidents and disappearances, a guiding sign was placed at the starting point of the Historical Lycian Walking Path, where thousands of local and foreign tourists walk every year. In addition, 95 warning signs placed for 125 km both remind you that you are on the right track and ensure that you can be reached as soon as possible if you inform the authorities of the last number you saw when you got lost.
The geographical coordinates of the placed plates were determined by the Gendarmerie Search and Rescue (JAK) Team, and the walking path was made safer by foreseeing the transportation without losing time in the event of an incident.
The historical Lycian Way, which starts from the Ovacık neighborhood of Muğla’s Fethiye district and ends in the Geyik Bayırı neighborhood of Antalya’s Konyaaltı District, is 535 km in total.
