This is the closest Lycian rock tombs I have been able to approach. Very impressive. Very good condition.. great for photography. Obviously as with all Lycian tombs which are in cliffs, you cannot actually enter them, as they are too high in the cliffs to access.

Visited the tombs as part of a day trip booked with Basket Travel. You get given alot of information about them and like the pyramids in Egypt it's amazing to see them in person and 'feel the history'

Not somewhere easy to get to but there are plenty of restaurants on the river that have the tombs as a backdrop. They are gently lit up at night. Very romantic.

Shame you can't get closer to these tombs. I was expecting to see Indiana Jones standing on one of the ledges.

I love the Rock Tombs and have been to see most of them around Turkey. The ones in Dalyan are fantastic and to me add to the specialness of Dalyan. They look amazing all lit up at night and never cease to fill me with awe every time I see them.

If you take a boat tour from Dalyan, you can see these incredible tombs from the boat. It is unbeliveble that people could craft these rock tombs in those early ages. It is definitely a "should visit" place.
