Tahtalı Mountain (or Mount Olympus) is located in the West Taurus Mountains, within the Bey Mountains group, on the Teke Peninsula. It is on the borders of Antalya, southwest of Kemer, west of Tekirova. Olimpos Beydağları is within the borders of the National Park.


Its lithological structure consists of Cambrian-Crates aged clastic-carbonated rocks formed by precipitation.

The western route of the Lycian road passes through the Bosphorus on the west side of Tahtalı Mountain. Along the route, the old cedar and juniper path is taken.

There is a cable car service up to the top of the mountain. From 726 meters to 2365 meters high, 4350 meters long road can be reached. With this length, it is one of the few cable cars in the world.

There are ancient ruins in Beycik Village on the slopes of Tahtalı Mountain. There are other Hellenistic ruins in the southern skirts of the mountain, 3 km NE of Beycik.

In ancient times, along with many other mountains, it was called Olympos / Olympus Mountain, meaning the mountain of the gods.
