In an elevated valley 17km northeast of Kalkan by road sits the beautiful village of Bezirgan, a timeless example of Turkish rural life. Towering some 725m above the fruit orchards and fields of wheat, barley, chickpeas, almonds and sticky sesame are the ruins of the Lycian hilltop citadel of Pirha. In the colder months there is a distant backdrop of snowcapped peaks.
A 9km (three-hour) section of the Lycian Way climbs from Kalkan, emerging at the distinctive grain stores at the western end of the village. You can also walk from here to İslamlar (about 10km), either by road or over the mountain on the old mill track, once used by locals taking their corn to İslamlar's mills.
