Tahtali is a mountain of the bull crest. It is located in Olympos-Beydaglari National Park . The popular resort of Kemer is 15 km from the mountain, and Antalya is 50 km away. Tahtali peak has a height of 2365 m and is considered to be the highest mountain in this region. At the highest point of the mountain is the upper cable car station – Olympos Teleferik.
Tahtali’s middle name is Olympos. That’s what the ancient Greeks called it, who believed that 12 celestials lived here and it was impossible for ordinary people to get to the top of the mountain. Tahtali has its own legends. One of them says that a dangerous monster lives near the mountain – Chimera. This creature looked terrifying – a lion’s head, a goat’s body and a snake’s tail. The brave son of the Corinthian king rode into battle with the chimera on the winged horse Pegasus , killed the monster and threw it into the bowels of Olympus, where it disappeared without a trace. Now locals say they often notice flames at the top, which they think are being spewed by the chimera itself.
