Lycia, which is situated between Antalya and Fethiye, is famous not only for its historic and tourist values, but also with 'Beydaglari' that covers the whole area and consists of 4 groups of mountains, namely; Tahtalidaglar with Kizlarsivrisi reaching 3070 meters, Bakirdaglari, Central Beydaglari and south-west Beydaglari. If you like, we can go towards Bakirdaglari and get some information about the peaks of this chain of mountains together.
The reason for naming those mountains Copper Mountains is that in the spring and the summer, before the sun advances toward west and is about to rise, the surfaces of those mountains turn into a kind of copper red with the sun rays. Anyone wishing to see the colors of Beydaglari, where the ski-center is situated, should come to the 'Scenery Point' on the way to Saklikent, where the necropolis of Trebenna antique city is, and watch the peaks of Beydaglari while the sun is rising in September. Tourism agencies that organize tours in winter give their clients the chance of observing those mountains by providing a short stop there.
In order to reach Bakirdaglari, the first place to get to is the above mentioned Saklikent. To get to Saklikent, which is 55 kilometers from Antalya, it is advisable either to rent a car or to take the minibuses that take the peasants to the highlands in Summer.
Bakirdaglari is separated from the other chain of Beydaglari by 'Tunektepe' in the south, and Pozan Dagi (2774) in the south-west. On the other side of Tunektepe, Tahtalidaglar,and from Pozan Dagi, Central Beydaglari begin. Let's have a look at the Bakirdaglari one by one.
