Cirali, Turkey: a restaurant amid a waterfall and a mill; a hippie village with treehouses and shacks selling feta-and-herb pancakes; and the Chimaera, a natural gas flame that emanates from the hilltop rocks of Olimpos National Park.
Olympos Coastal National Park, home to scattered Roman ruins and a picturesque beach, is the site that inspired a number of legends of Greek mythology, most notably the Chimera. Olympos' name is derived from Mount Olympus, a site which more than 20 mountains now hold claim. A short hike from Olympos beach, is Mount Chimera, located in the ancient region of Lycia. Referred to as Yanartaş today, the area features a number of vents spread that spew methane gas, and subsequently fire.
