4000 Years BC

By Caledonia
These are amazing tombs carved out of the cliffs near Dalyan in Turkey. Said to be made around 4000 years BC, they have been robbed of their treasures many hundreds of years ago and, as it is too dangerous to climb up there, they are now viewed from little boats carrying around 25 passengers each. It is quite an awesome sight when your boat turns the bend and you see them for the first time.

I tried cropping it more but it took something away from the situation of the tombs so I changed it back to this. Thanks for your comment.

To Madbob
Dalaman is another town which is relatively nearby - these tombs are on a huge lake which meets the sea by means of channels filled with grass reeds ----- at Turtle Beach.
