Travel in Time
In addition to pine trees on the slopes of the mountains, it has a vast vegetation with thousands of plants from thyme to sage, from citrus fruits to sweetgum trees. The resinous oil of the log trees is used in pharmacy and cosmetics. The dried bark of trees has been important as incense material in the region since ancient times. Faralya region also has a very high share in the Turkish economy in apiculture and honey production.
Surrounded by steep rocky walls reaching 350 meters, the valley got its name from the more than 80 butterfly species it hosts, especially the tiger butterfly. In this valley, you have the opportunity to see 30 different daytime butterflies and 40 types of night butterflies for 9 months.
The waterfall, whose source is in the Faralya district and poured from a height of 50 meters, reaches the Mediterranean with a stream passing through the middle of the valley. Transportation to the Butterfly Valley, which you will pass by watching the view from above, is provided by boats while coming to our hotel.
A path from Faralya district also reaches the valley, but due to its rope climbing routes and variable surface, it should be explored with a guide.
There are 261 vertebrate and 29 invertebrate bird species and 40 different kinds of plants here. You can see all the rare and endangered species in all seasons of the year, as it is in the center of the paradise.
The ancient Lycian civilization cities are recommended to the Unesco World Heritage list with this feature. Tombs and monuments that have unique Lycian language are also found in the Faralya region.
