Mount Güllük-Termessos National Park (Turkish: Güllük Dağı-Termessos Milli Parkı), established on November 3, 1970, is a national park in southern Turkey. It is located in the Döşemealtı-Korkuteli districts of Antalya Province.[1]

It takes its name from the mountain Güllük Dagi (Mount Güllük), which was known in prehistory as Solymus and the ancient city of Termessos. Hence the area may be the homeland of an ancient people known as the Solymoi and one of their towns, Solyma. Mount Solymus may also be the basis of the name of an eponymous Greek mythological figure.
