Mount Babadag in the resort town of Oludeniz hosts thousands of local and foreign tourists every year. Of these, more than 165,000 people para-glided from this famous mountain in 2019.
Breathtaking panoramas and stable weather conditions make this site one of the best areas in Europe for paragliding.
Chairman of Fethiye Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Osman Cirali stated that this “year 166,701 people flew from Mt. Babadag. This number is higher than last year’s flights. Our goal next year is to catch 200,000 flights.”
At present there is ongoing construction for a cable car which will allow for 1 million people to go up the mountain and in turn will make a great contribution to the economy.
