Hired a car for 3 days whilst holidaying in Kalkan - a visit 2 years ago with some torrential rain for a few days meant we had not been allowed into the gorge as it was too dangerous, indeed just before our visit 2 people had been drowned in a flash flood. The guide we were allocated was lovely &... More

This was the best tour in our whole Fethiye trip! We walked 1km into the canyon and back out again. Ramazan took videos with our iPhone and carried our bags when we got to deeper sections of the water filled canyon. He couldn't have done a better job guiding us through the potentially treacherous terrain if he had carried us... More

This is a small gorge carved out by a fast flowing river. You pay to go along a walkway set into the rock, ending up in an area where you can walk down to the river. From here you could wade across and walk/wade further up the gorge depending on the time of year or just look at the water... More

The gorge is 18km off the D400 approached on a long winding road. At the foot of the gorge there are lots of makeshift bars, restaurants and gift shops and a ticket office next to the entrance gate. The entrance fee is 5tl and water shoes are about 3tl to hire. Once through the turnstile you will be offered a... More

A fabulous experience, one not to be missed! Be sure not to carry too many expensive items as you will be wading through deep waters! Great day!

This was part of a coach tour to Tlos. I f you have mobility problems the is not for you as there is quite a long walk from the parking area to the gorge itself. Make sure you take water shoes with you as it can be tricky crossing the gorge due to the current and flip flops can get... More

Amazing natural gorge we visited which our guide told us 'you might get a bit wet'! This was an understatement as at one point the water was up to my neck. Great place but potentially dangerous, very few signs to indicate what you were getting into. You definitely need good water shoes with some grip, the stones underneath the water... More
