Format: Paperback
This is a brilliant book giving a meticulous and intelligent guide to the Lycian Way. The book is peppered with idiosyncratic local knowledge, useful tips, Turkish language translations and practical advice. The poetical descriptions of this beautiful and under walked area make the book a pleasurable armchair read and an invaluable walk guide. Sections of the walk are broken into small chunks (ie 2 hours) which makes it straightforward to pick out sections to do independantly of the whole walk. Also there is not a map bound into the book but I suspect that the maps of the area may be restricted by the Turkish military (??) but the sponsors of the walk (one of the main Turkish banks) have printed a map of the Lycian Way. My only reservation is the lack of an ordanance survey type map but this is a minor issue and this book is in a class of its own. I think the Sunday Times named the walk as one of its 10 best walks. K Clows demonstrates an insiders view of the area. The photographs in the book are pretty good too.

This is the definitive and only book availiable on walking the Lycian Way!
The way it is set out allows anyone from absolute beginners to enthusiasts to take a walk through the beautiful scenery it describes.

Kate Clow discovered the Lycian Way by finding all the old paths and joining them up. She was given an Award normally only given to Turkish citizens for this.

She has lived in Turkey since 1989, I think, so knows a thing or two about the locality. She also has her own walking company which aranges walks along the Lycian Way and other routes.

we did part of The Lycian Way with Kate last year. The scenery was spectacular but her views on the world and the conspiracies that surround it make carrying 4 litres of of water in 90 degree heat worth it. Cancel you subs to The Lobster and do this holiday!

very useful explanation to prepare or to perform this exciting walk, which is nearly unknown to the great public.

HASH(0x95e5a444) out of 5 stars A great guide and a fantastic walk! (but buy it cheaper from Amazon.co.uk) 3 May 2007
By Dr. Milo Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I did much of this walk (roughly the first half) in the summer of 2001. The Lycian Way guide was both the inspiration for the trip and an indispensable resource during the walk. The directions are faultless and easy to follow, and everyone on the journey - as in all of Turkey - was unfailingly kind, helpful and polite.

Be aware, however, that there is no need to pay the outrageous amounts asked from resellers in the US: you can get this volume new from Amazon.co.uk for about £10 (i.e. about US $20).

My only other advice is to laminate the map that accompanies the book before leaving!
