Carian Trail Trekking Tour

Lace up your walking boots and escape the crowds: Turkey’s longest hiking trail offers a window into the country’s lesser-visited, southwest shores and hinterlands. The 530-mile route, completed in 2013, has its roots in ancient history — some stone paths are said to have been laid by Alexander the Great’s men over 2,000 years ago. In an exciting addition to the trail, a new project aims to develop and promote one of its most underrated attractions: the Latmos rock paintings. Nearly 180 Neolithic paintings adorn the Latmos Mountains, many of which have been interpreted as symbols of peace and brotherhood that further elevate the historic importance of the Carian Trail as an ancient trading thoroughfare.
