We took a private, well-paved, steep road for 7km to the Mount Olympos cable car’s lower station at 725 m. Tahtalı Dağı, also known as Mount Olympos, is a mountain near Kemer, a seaside resort on the Turkish Riviera in Antalya Province. From it, the start of the Taurus Mountains can be seen. If you would like to sit on top of the world and look down on creation, the cable car (🎫 40 USD / return) climbs almost to the top of 2365 meters-high Tahtalı Dağ, the centerpiece of Beydağları Sahil National Park. The gondolas seat 80 people and depart every half hour. The trip takes 10 minutes.
