Çıralı is an agricultural village in southwest Turkey, in the Kemer district of Antalya Province. It is walking distance from the ancient ruins of Olympos and Chimaera permanent gas vents, located in the ancient Lycia region of Anatolia.

It is a very small rural village located just over an hour’s drive southwest from Antalya and has a 3.5 km secluded beach. The ancient ruins of Olympos are located on the far end of the sea side and in a long hike up the mountains the flames of the Chimaera / Yanartaş can be found. Çıralı is also known for being an area protected by the WWF for the nesting of caretta, also known as loggerhead sea turtles.

Çıralı’s beach is surrounded by family-run pensions conveniently located for tourists. Little cafes run along the seashore down to the side of the beach with the ancient ruins of Olympos. The location of the beach allows people to enjoy the sunrise that spreads over the salty Mediterranean sea.

Highlights of the Lycian Way with paths can also be found in Çıralı. One of these paths runs from Çıralı to Tekirova (19 km) and another travels from Çıralı to Ulupınar and then back down to the flames of the Chimaera, which is around 12 km. All these trails and paths are marked in red and white.


Another section of the Lycian Way (Likya Yolu) near Çıralı, is the summit of Tahtalı Dağ, also known as Mt. Olympos. It is located in the National Park of Olympos or Olimpos Bey Dağları Parkı.

Çıralı is full of historic sites such as the ruins of Olympos and the flames of Chimaera. It is also a highly visited location during the summer for its large seaside.


Yanartaş (flaming rock) is the Turkish name of a geographical feature near the Olympos valley and national park in Antalya Province in southwestern Turkey. The location is 80 km southwest of Antalya, near the town of Çıralı. It is generally believed to be the ancient Mount Chimaera. The area is located on a track popular with hikers and trekkers on the Lycian Way.

It is the site of dozens of small fires which burn constantly from vents in the rocks on the side of the mountain. Directly below the fires are the ruins of the temple of Hephaistos, the Greek god who was associated with fire through his role as the blacksmith to the gods. To see the fires and the ruins, visitors must first go to the entrance at the foot of the mountain. The site is at the top of a one kilometre climb. This is basically a rock stairway and is easily managed. Most people visit at night, when the fires are at their most spectacular.

The fires are grouped over an area of 5000 m2 and are fueled by gas emissions which have been burning for at least 2500 years. These emissions seem to change seasonally: vents and flames are more vigorous in winter months. This is a common characteristic of such seeps, where gas flux is typically modulated by gas pressure build-up induced by groundwater recharge and changes in atmospheric pressure.


an organic thermogenic gas, related to type III kerogen occurring in Palaeozoic and Mesozoic organic-rich sedimentary rocks,
an abiogenic gas produced by low-temperature serpentinization in the Tekirova ophiolitic unit.
These vents represent the biggest emission of abiogenic methane discovered on land so far. The emissions do not have a volcanic origin, since methane is not related to mantle or magma degassing.
In ancient times sailors could navigate by the flames, but today they are more often used to brew tea.

The site was identified as the ancient Mount Chimaera by Sir Francis Beaufort in 1811, and described by T.A.B.Spratt in his Travels in Lycia, Milyas, and the Cibyratis, in company with the late Rev. E. T. Daniell. The discussion on the connection between the myth and the exact location of Chimera was started by Forbiger in 1844. George E. Bean was of the opinion that the name was allochtonous and could have been transferred here from its original location further west, as cited by Strabo, owing to the presence of the same phenomenon and the fires.
