Activity Description

  • 01 DAY

    Driving to Beçin Castle is located at the edge of Milas Plain on the steep rock mass. The ruins on the slope and the skirts of the north of the castle show that this area was used as a necropolis in ancient era. A child grave from the Early Bronze Age has found in 2007 and small provenances in the soil tell us about this place. It proves that it is used in 3,000 BC. It was also used as a management center from Byzantine to Ottoman, because it was easy to defend.

    Beçin Castle, which is used as a museum today, is one of the wonderful places where you can see the beautiful view of Milas Plain.

    Then we are heading to Hekatomnos Sarcophagus who was an early 4th-century BC ruler of Caria. He was the satrap (governor) of Caria for the Persia. According to some scientists, exploring and finding a 2400 years-King Hecatomnos's Tomb monument has turned the world's face to Milas It is defined that Hekatomnos's Tomb inspired the Mausoleum in Bodrum. Hekatomnos's Tomb monument has justifiably taken place on the temporary list of 'World Heritage' of UNESCO in 2012.

Happy Travelers

I walked with Deniz Kilic, the director of Ibex Adventure Club, across hundreds of kilometers of summertime Anatolia. He was my guide, interpreter, logistician, morale officer, and designated storyteller. My understanding of the backcountry villages of Turkey, and my appreciation for the immensely deep culture of that beautiful corner of the planet, I owe to Deniz. Cheerful, enterprising, tough, funny, utterly responsible--Deniz is the perfect partner in any adventure, small or large, that you may be planning. I recommend him highly.
