Olympos Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
There are organised trips to see the ancient "Chimera" or perpetual flame on the side of the hills at night, and it is sometimes done in a tractor towed trailer! However, there is steep hill to walk to the site. The natural gas seepage on the surface burns if you lighted with a match. There is a ruin of church at the site where the people used the same gas for cooking...
Olympos is a great place to relax or to party depending on the pansyon you decide to stay at - and two meals are usually included in the accommodation price (which is done per person) so the cost is really quite minimal - unless you drink all your money away (which is not entirely unlikely in many cases!).
12 Feb 2007 - Turkish Daily News Reports that a massive fire destroyed Kadirs Tree Houses, which was one of the most popular back packer destination in the area.
Ramazan Kaya, brother of the resort's owner Kadir Kaya, said there was some solace in the fact that no one was hurt during the incident, but that 90 percent of the resort had been lost. "I hope we can rebuild the facilities for the new season" he said.
