The 'rafting' on huge rubber rings down the canyon was great fun and easy enough for any age - water very refreshing in the heat of the day. The gorge a magnificent spectacle altho a little difficult to walk up with slippery mud after rain earlier in the week. Even so a must see

Only a hour drive from Fethiye through some lovely scenery is Saklikent Gorge. Wading through the freezing water is stimulation to say the least, but well worth the effort.

Fabulous gorge, & cold mountain water flowing through the gorge. Try to do the trip after a days rain on the mountain, makes it more exciting. You can also do white water rafting if you want.

Lovely drive out to this place through typical Turkish villages. Plenty of places to park if you are in a car. Dont forget to take rubber beach shoes with you as you will need them if you want to follow the rope up the river through the gorge. I have been a few times and at lots of different times... More

Be prepared to get wet/muddy and take good walking footwear, lots of walking through water, in places up to your chest. At the beginning you have to cross fast flowing, ice cold water, which is a little daunting, just take care and take the route advised. Well worth visiting.

What fun and what exhilaration We enjoyed we went about 3 miles into the gorge and were at times chest high in freezing... More

Saklikent Gorge is Turkey's 2nd largest gorge, discovered only 20 years ago. You can walk a long way up it through the water - be prepared to get very, very wet the water can come all the way up to your shoulders in places. Breathtaking rocks, great fun in the water, showers and food available at the end when you... More

Well worth a visit, you can walk along the canyon floor in low water season and the sides of the canyon are awesome.

The scenery is breathtaking and there are a lot of activities that you can do, suitable for a variety of age groups. 1. 1st part of the walk through the gorge is on the bridge, above the... More
