Description Suggest change

The rock is amazing limestone full of karstic features which make for very unique limstone climbing. As of 2018, 1300+ sport routes spread among walls facing every direction, so shade/sun climbing is possible year round. As it is for the rest of Turkey the climbing season in Geyikbayiri is during the tourist off season. I was there at the end of summer just before peak climbing season, so I can't say anything regarding the crowds as we were able to climb anything we wanted just as long as it was in the shade. A nice stream runs through providing a great cool down in the heat of the day. There are great local markets a couple of days a week that sell fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, etc.

Getting There Suggest change

Geyikbayiri is located about 35km NE of Antalya. The best way to access the crags is to contact your lodging provider and arrange a pick up. Getting to Geyikbayiri by bus takes around 2 to 3 hours and the fare is around € 5,-. Take any bus from the airport to the central bus station and from there take bus 516 or 521 to Geyikbayiri. Or check the app MOOVIT for alternative routes. Missed the last bus? Catch a cab or hitchhike the last kilometers up hill. The locals are very friendly and are willing to give rides. There are several camps in the valley: Climbers Garden, Josito Camp, Rido Camping, Kezban Guesthouse and Flying Goat Camp & Hostel. From the camps approaches range and start at 10 min hike.
