Olympus was an old city in Lycia. It was arranged in a stream valley close to the coast. Its remnants are found south of the cutting edge town Çıralı in the Kumluca region of Antalya Province, Turkey. Together with the locales of the antiquated urban communities Phaselis and Idyros it is a piece of the Olympus Beydaglari National Park. The ceaseless gas fires at Yanartaş are discovered a couple of kilometers toward the northwest of the site. Olympus is presently a well-known vacationer zone. The vestiges of the old city end in a valley that holds various annuities and visitor houses. The valley is bound on the water side by Mount Omurga. Yanartaş is a land highlight close to the Olympus valley and national park in Antalya Province in southwestern Turkey. It is the site of many little flames which blaze always from vents in the stones in favor of the mountain. It is by and large accepted to be the antiquated Mount Chimera. The region is situated on a track well known with explorers and trekkers on the Lycian Way.
