Saklikent Gorge Turkey

Saklikent Gorge spectaclar gorge split in two by an earthquakeIn the mountains above Fethiye and is a natural wonder that is hidden from view. It was formed when the mountain was split in two by an earthquake and is over 18km long, up to 300metres high and in places 3 metres wide (making it the longest and deepest canyon in turkey and the 3rd longest in Europe). It has rushing torrents and waterfalls of ice-cold water that even during the hottest part of the year remain very cold as in places the sides are so steep and narrow the sun cannot penetrate it. You can walk along a wooden walkway for about 150meters. Depending on the time of year if you wish you can go even further into the gorge but you do need to be dressed appropriately as you may get wet (You can rent plastic shoes if you don’t have any) and it can be difficult as Saklikent Gorge spectaclar gorge split in two by an earthquakeaccess is gained by holding onto a safety rope whilst walking through cold, fast flowing water. Once inside the gorge look up and see the limestone canyon walls rise above you. After a while the water level gets high, it is after this point that there are caves (16 have been found so far). It is also believed that prehistoric man used the gorge for shelter. There are several restaurants with tables on platforms suspended over the river that give you picturesque views of the awesome gorge. After leaving the gorge you may wish to go to the mudflats for a bath it might take years off you or for those of you that are bald maybe your hair will grow back then wash off in that cold water that runs down from the gorge.
