More photos of the derelict hotel buildings in Iҫmeler

First things first. This trek is a tad dangerous and I wouldn’t advise you to attempt it. There are barriers for a reason. If like me you decide to climb the fence or go up the steps on the other side, proceed with caution and wear good footwear. After all, I can’t tell you to stay away if curiosity got the better of me and I took the trek upwards myself. 

The first collection of abandoned villa type buildings made up the bulk of my previous blog post. I will post a few photos for all those who haven’t got time to go looking. 

As you can see, had this building been completed, the views from the rooms would have been stunning. It seems from the last photo and photos yet to come that their only use now is for people to hang around making fires, applying graffiti to the walls and trashing the place. There is still much beauty in the decay.

There is a small stone pathway at the back of these villas that leads up to a small cube like building that I presume might be some sort of boiler room. I’m not entirely sure what the building is but take a look and see if you can tell. Beware if you walk up, there are no handrails. It’s a treacherous entrance. 

On a positive note, if you get to the top of the hill, the views are absolutely stunning.

And check out this out …

I took this trek with my husband. When you reach the top, there is an eerie silence about the place until the goats interrupted the moment. Within a short space of time, a load of goats mobbed the place. We watched as they flooded the buildings, jumping through windows, chewing on the flowers and foliage. 

All in a good day out and this day out was free of charge (bonus) and certainly one with a difference. Remember if you do go up there, wear sensible footwear and take a camera.

  1. Where was the fossils? I always go walking up here to see what else is up there but never seen them. Xx

      Hi Laura, I was told that they were Mantis egg cases but they feel like fossils. They are solid to the touch. They are located between the first lot of villas and the little pump house at the top of the hill. There were quite a few but you do have to go searching a little (lifting rocks etc).
