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.

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.

We went to Saklikent on the 2nd part of the day trip. It was the most exciting trip during my Holiday in Turkey. 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

Well! Our first trip to Saklikent came just three days after the first rain in this part of Turkey for over 4 months!! This meant of course that there had been ( and still was) a lot of water flowing down the gorge, and rather a lot of mud where the flood water had been! We were in a jeep... More

Great part of full day trip Be careful of rocks is all i'd say Lunch afterwards at the Trout farm superb. But felt guilty in ordering trout once you see them swimming about epcially around the bar Well worth the money paid for the whole day trip

Don't carry anything except your camera and wallet. If possible put them in a waterproof container. Definitely wear beach shoes or walking sandals as it is a tricky walk. The crossing of the stream right at the beginning, is fairly tricky, just because of the strength of the flowing water. Otherwise you don't get wet higher than knees until the... More

The gorge and surrounding countryside is amazing. Very reasonable entrance fee but dont feel tempted to hire their shoes you dont really need them and they were very uncomfortable. Also you do not need to pay for a tour guide, just follow the flow. It was busy in August but it didn't seem to be a problem. Good vibe from... More

Visited the Gorge on 21/09/14. 5 Lira entry is really cheap for this I think. You wade through knee high icy water (it aches!) to get from one side to the other and then there are hours worth of exploring to do! We were on a limited time as we went as part of a booked excursion but we managed... More
