Ovacik’s Babadag (Father Mountain) is part of the Taurus Mountain range sweeping across southern Turkey directly rising from sea level to a summit of 1969m.  The magnitude of this Mediterranean Mountain is a rare natural occurrence and is what makes it such a lure for hikers and paragliders that flock to this special place.  On this ancient Lycian trek, hikers can witness the beautiful flora ranging from rare orchids to old cedar trees and even glimpse eagles soaring on one of the Mountain ridges.
