About
The cable car at Babadag stops at two levels, the first of which has an open-air concert theater, a playground, and viewing platforms. The second level boasts a restaurant with incredible panoramic views, and you can take a chairlift from there and hike the steep path to the summit. Bring a jacket with you, as the temperature drops considerably the higher you go, and get there early for fewer crowds. Babadag is popular with thrill-seeking paragliders from April to November—make a lunch reservation at the restaurant for a delicious meal with a front-row seat of the action. – Tripadvisor

    Well worth it!
    Very cheap for a day out, We loved the views. You could spend ages up there and the restaurant looked great for a romantic meal but we done this on our last day and had a flight in the evening so did not get to spend to long up there. Its a must when in Turkey!

    Amazing views of fetiye and Oludeniz
    There are 4 levels: 1200m, 1700m, 1800m and 1900m. The enclosed cable car takes you to 1200m and 1700m. There’s a restaurant at 1200, 1700 and 1800. We ate at 1800 and had refreshments at 1700. The views were amazing. The ski lift to the 1800m is scary as you just have this manual barrier from overhead and it’s just open air. Was too scared to take me mobile phone ti take pictures! Interestingly the cable car to 1900m does not work / is dismantled and there’s no open restaurant there either but views are amazing. There’s a red bus that can take you up there and also down to 1700 if you don’t fancy the ski lift. The highlight is the entertainment that is in watching paragliders take off from the 1800m. The audience reaction coupled with the not so smooth take offs from first timers definitely provided much conversation and comedy!

    Amazing experience
    Would recommend this to anyone. We went around 4pm and there was no wait or queue. The views were amazing. We sat for ages in the cafe watching the paragliders take off. Drinks and ice creams reasonable prices

    Fantastic Experience - don't miss it!
    Fantastic day out! The cable car and chair lift were smooth and serene... not at all scary, and excellent value for money at 300TL per person (about £10). Watching the paragliders take off was fascinating, though I didn't have the courage to try it myself (not sure my travel insurance would have covered it - that's my excuse anyway ;-) and the sunset was marvellous. The one and only criticsm is that when we left at 7.30pm the toilets in the main building at the base of the cable car were in a disgusting condition.

    A must do!
    The most incredible views, I would advise to go during sunset! Would recommend going to the lowest level restaurant (first stop on the cable car). A bit more pricey, but worth every penny for the food, decor and the views! You can get off at any level and still go up to the top! A must do if you visit the area

    Brilliant place to visit.
    This is an absolute must if you are on holiday in this area. Fantastic experience, not expensive, gorgeous views with restaurants to dine in and watch the world go by. Didn't sky dive, but it was great to watch others jump off. Beautiful place to watch the sun go down.

    Amazing experience on Babadag
    This was a fantastic experience, amazing views, we took loads of great photos. It was great value for money, we had lunch in the restaurant at the top of the chair lift which was very nice & reasonably priced. It was brilliant being able to watch all the Paragliders jumping off the mountain. We would do this again to watch the sunset and would recommend this to anyone coming to this area.

    Fantastic Trip
    Thoroughly enjoyed our trip up the mountain on the cable car. It’s so easy to do yourself don’t waste money on an organised tour! We took the dolmus bus for around 50p and then paid for the cable car trip around £8 each! Tour operator wanted to charge £40 for the trip! Beautiful views from all stages and the cable cars were clean, stable and very quiet. Fantastic watching the paragliders taking off and just beautiful views to be had.

Unfortunately we we were very disappointed with our trip on the cable car. A lack of information from the staff at the front desk left us feeling disappointed and misled. We expected to pay 80 lira each as the reviews said but instead we were charged 150 lira each. We were told the lifts only went every hour - fine. We expected there to be a nice viewing area so took a packed lunch to enjoy at the top but what we weren’t told was that viewing area was shut and we would only be taken to the restaurant and not fully to the top (this area is closed in winter but we were not told this when we paid for our tickets). When we got off the lift we were told to go directly to the restaurant, every where else was shut off we weren’t allowed at the paragliding area (understandable) but the one viewing point that was open was taken over by building works. We went off to the restaurant and sat down outside. We discovered a leak in our bag from one of our drinks so my partner got all our food out and everything else from the bag to try and dry it out. At which point a member of staff came over from the restaurant and asked us if we were eating the food here. My partner said yes but we also planned to buy a drink and we were only going to eat it there as everywhere else was shut and we weren’t told about this and had an hour to wait before our the next lift back down. The member of staff was passive aggressive and rude and essentially kicked us out of the restaurant (even though we were outside). If we were told the relevant information we wouldn’t have taken a packed lunch up with us and would have eaten before but at this point we were hungry and fed-up. We ended up having to stand around the cable car entry point for 40 minutes to wait for the next lift down as there was nowhere else for us to go and no seating area. I hope this information prevents you from having the same experience as us. The views on the way up and down were amazing and I’m sure the food and drink at the restaurant would be good but maybe a little expensive. I would suggest checking with the staff at the booking desk at what is open before booking your ticket as like I said they did not provide us with the relevant information and this is what was so frustrating. In regards to the member of staff at the restaurant my partner was frustrated and hungry when you came to speak to us and admitted he could have handled it better but you made us feel very unwelcome and as a paid hospitality member of staff you could have diffused the situation rather than leave us feeling the way we did. You didn’t want to speak to me and only listened to my partner whereas I was going to ask if it would be ok for us to sit there and eat our sandwiches if we ordered a drink. You didn’t give me a chance to explain the situation and wanted us out of there straight away. The restaurant was very quiet at the time and I assume you would have benefitted from us buying a drink and maybe a piece of cake too but you lost that opportunity by making us feel so unwelcome. All in all this was a very frustrating and disappointing experience.

Great views.

The cable car is only a year old and it still feels like new. It was very straight forward getting through the security at the bottom and not much of a queue to get on. As there was only 2 of us we were put in a car with another family which wasn't too bad. Due to this we were not facing the direction of travel however the views were still amazing as we headed up. It easily took around 10 minutes to arrive at the first station but unfortunately we were not able to get off due to an event happening. We were not told this in advance and only became aware when someone on the platform shouted towards the car that we couldn't get off, it was closed. Slightly disappointed that we weren't told prior to this and therefore didn't get the full multi level experience.

Due to not getting off we continued up the mountain for another 5/10 minutes before arriving at 1700. The area around was lovely and the view of the paragliders flying by was lovely. It wasn't overly busy and there was plenty of space to walk around.
We unfortunately weren't able to get a booking at the 1700 bar and grill at short notice however we still wanted to go up for the view at sunset.

We decided to go on the chair lift up to the next viewing point (after my partner taking some persuading). These are what you would expect at a ski resort. A lot of fun to go up in, just make sure to hold on to hats etc as it can get very windy. Once we got to 1800 the view was spectacular.

It is a shame that the burger place at 1800 and chair lift to 1900 and the taco place are not opened yet, however once they do I'm sure they will be very popular.

We tried to time our decent to coincide with the sunset and we managed pretty well. Although the colours of the sunset can obviously be seen from down below, it feels a little bit special being up do high and being able to see everything around us.

As long as you are not afraid of heights this is a must do when in the area.

We went as a party of six, arived at arounnd 5pm giving us ample time to wander around taking photographs of the fantastic views, before siting down foe a relaxing drink before dinner watching the paragliders taking off.
Food and wine were superb, with a good sellection for more or less what you would pay in any resteraunt in the area.
Service was friendly and attentive and the sunset spectacular. Well recomended!

Note: when the sun starts to set the temperature drops rapidly and it can get very cold, you need to dress warmly...

It was wonderful to go there . You can ascend by cable car or go up in a van driven by paragliding teams. The Tandem Paragliding offered by REACTION PARAGLIDING is five star. Pasha is the guy who helps you decide. No pressure. No lies . Just information and friendliness. All our family asked for the same pilot - Tuncay due to his reputation and skill . All their pilots are very highly trained. There is no ‘jumping off a cliff’. You jog a few steps down. Slope and then lift gently ( honestly!) into the air . It wasn’t rough swishing around but gentle gliding more like floating in a comfy armchair. I was scared about the landing but it felt like a feather landing. After being terrified , I fully relaxed after about ten seconds. These pilots are trained to the highest level, have competed in big competitions and have many years experience. They take photos and videos of you in the air which you can buy for twenty pounds if you like them. I can’t imagine anyone saying no. The pics are spectacular. Can’t recommend them highly enough.

Fantastic, such a great experience A 20 minute Cable Car to the second level then the option of travelling even higher via chair left "Ski Lift". Great Restaurants Bars and very helpful Staff. And all for about £7.50 each We spent 4 hours up there watching the Para Gliders throw themselves of the launch platforms at various levels while we had an excellent lunch NOT TO BE MISSED

When reaching the top of Babadag you get a privileged view of people starting paragliding. There is a lovely restaurant where you can enjoy a lovely meal on the terrace and enjoy the panoramic view of Fethiye. You also get a lovely ride in the forests before reaching the top of Babadag. Temperature is cooler than the scorching hot Fethiye which made it very pleasant.

Travelled up babadag in the cablecar return ticket 170 TL each, Brilliant experience, very smoothe and views are incredible, you can get off at 1200 meters or stay on to 1700 meters where the big restaurant is and the paragliding take off ramp is, then onwards and upwards another 1000 meters on the ski lift to 1800 meters to get an even better view of Turkey and even Rhodes on a clear day. Was absolutely beautiful.
Unfortunately the second ski lift to the summit wasn't working, so we started to walk up🚶‍♀️we got 3/4 of the way and give up ...in the heat of 38 degrees and steepness Babadag won ..🥵.
Very clean facilities toilets, restaurant, snack bar and viewing platform. Definatly worth a visit for the superb views and to watch the paragliders take off. A little more expensive for your food and drink but your paying for the privledge of taking in the clean air and the outstanding views.
Definatly recommend a visit.

OMG, if there is one thing you must do it is do the Cable Car. It is breath taking and a great experience. we did an early trip at 10am when it opened, as it gets very hot in the cars.
The restaurant at the top is a fantastic way to watch the para gliders take off and do stunts,
cannot recommend this enough

A trip in the cable car is a must experience although was a little disappointed as we could only go to 1200m. Going higher was restricted to the paragliders due to snow still being on the summit.
The restaurant at 1200m is amazing and offers spectacular views of Oludeniz and the blue lagon. Prices are very reasonable, try the iced frappe it's so good.
Cost for the trip is 140tl per person return and covers the cost to the summit that you can't do yet.
One disappointment is no viewing area to watch the paragliders at 1200m.
