A little About Kayakoy: Kayaköy is an ancient Greek village that was declared a ” World Friendship and Peace Village” by the UNESCO. It is also known as the “abandoned city” Originally built in the 1700s, the town called Karmylassos in Greek was home to as many as 20,000 Greek Orthodox residents by the early twentieth century. The messy fallout of World War I and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire led to the land grabs of the Greco-Turkish War (1919–1922). After the Greeks had to leave the area during the years 1923-1924, their houses were left abandoned on the hillside because the newly arrived Turkish people did not want to live in them. They instead preferred to settle in the lower part of the valley.

The trail begins in pine timberland, anyway, the trees will vanish over the long haul for Mediterranean shrubland (the maquis) and the forest track will change into a confined pathway, sectionally cobbled .. With some amazing points of view of the Blue Lagoon to right, you’ll start ascending along the trail which turns and bends for the mountain. After while substantial and shadeless climb which may also seem like it’ll keep going forever, and passing thru the occasional gate carved into rocks blocking the trail, we will arrive the final cistern and a huge tree which provide shades to relaxation. The trail yet again begins rising after the cistern. Around 1 km far from Kozağaç, The trail will subsequently join a wide soil town street and in the wake of turning left while having the full sight of the town of Kozağaç, we’ll touch base in the main wellspring with extremely cool and great tasting water beside the road. Kozagac – Kirme : 5 km The trail will start slowly descending at the exit of Kozağaç towards Kirme. Most of the road between kozagac and kirme is asphalt, first stage of this steep ascent asphalt road is tiresome, passing this 5km distance especially in hot weather is a little bit annoying.
