Çirali

From Kaş we headed to Çirali, which is the more grown up version of Olympos, the village famous for its tree houses. But, we quickly learned that we are not really grownups yet since we were not willing to fork over the dough needed to stay in any of the nice hotels or bungalows in Çirali, and ended up staying in one the bare bones tree house there anyway.

The beach there is breathtaking - backed by gorgeous green mountains as far as you can see. It was so nice to lay around all day, swimming and just taking it all in. The Chimaera is also near by in the mountains - also known as Burning Rock, it is a cluster of eternal flames that naturally burn from crevices in the rocks. We hiked up there at night, led by a local dog we nicknamed Barky, and sat around camp fire style drinking Raki (the Turkish version of Grapa). The highlight may have been scaring some drunk Germans silly on the way down from the mountain in the pitch dark. Good times.
