Product description

The Lycian Way, Turkey's first long-distance walk, celebrates its 10th birthday in 2009. This 500km coastal trail has risen from obscurity to international acclaim, featured in "Time" magazine and selected by the BBC as one of the world's 30 best walks. As the route matures, the walker profile is changing from dedicated backpacker to supported trekker, active holidaymaker and enthusiast for archeology and local culture. The route remains stunningly beautiful, snaking over the steep coastal cliffs, dipping to isolated beaches, climbing through cedar forest. This is the 2009, 3rd edition of the official route guide. The book contains detailed route and historical site descriptions, altitude profiles and a large detachable map. Route updates, downloadable GPS files, accommodation and transport information and links to firms providing holidays on the Lycian Way are all on the website.

I have recently just completed about 1/4 of the Lycian Way from Fetheya to Ucagiz. In preparation for the anticipated outdoor adventure, I bought Kate Clow's "The Lycian Way". I must say that it was not what I expected. The directions were impossible to follow, the information was at times incorrect and the relief profiles did not do the trail any justice. The map that was included was only slightly helpful. It is much better to use the official "Lycian Way" website and the blogs that are linked to the official website. In addition, the trail is often hard to follow and hard to find as the trail markers can be sporadic and misleading. Fortunately many trekkers have supplemented the markers with more visible cairns. This trek has much work to do before it can be considered anywhere near world class. 0/10 for Kate Clow!
