“Brilliant,”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This is the most beautiful place, but if you have any sort of mobility problems or are not confident climbing over rocks then it may not be suitable. To get to the part of the gorge that you can walk through there are several large rocks to climb over then an area of fast flowing water where you have to hold onto a rope while the cold water rushes at you. After that the water is much calmer and warmer but beware beneath the water are rocks and also more areas where you have to climb over rocks to get past but it really is a lovely, tranquil walk. There is a photographer who will take your photo at various points and these photos are available to buy when you get out of the gorge and back to the cafe's.
Special shoes are needed as the fast flowing water and rocks mean that if the soles of your shoes are not thick enough you may hurt your feet and also if your shoes are not secure enough you may loose them. My son had a pair of 'jellies' (with a proper fastening) and he managed to loose one. If you don't have suitable footwear you can hire shoes at the gorge for about 3 lire (or if you think you will use them more you can get them in the resorts for 18/20 lire)
Tip: Take some coins for a tip (notes may get lost/wet) and put them in a zip up pocket or a top pocket. When going through the rocky areas and also the fast flowing water there are some 'guides' who will help people get through. One such guide helped us immensely. A mentioned we took our son. He managed to get down to the fast flowing water but then my husband was a bit unsure about getting him across the fast flowing water. Before we knew it one of the 'guides' had taken our son on his shoulders and walked with him across the water and safely deposited him at the other side and waited for us to get across and collect him. (this is not as bad as it sounds as there was nowhere other than to the other side of the water where the guide could have taken him) This 'guide' then helped us over various other points where it was a bit 'tricky' - showing us the best way to go etc. Unfortunately as we had been advised not to take anything we didn't have anything to give this very helpful young man.

“Adventurous!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We took a break from the beach and spent a day Exploring the gorge. It is easy to get there by car and we went there without a group. We found a local guide right in the canyon who helped us to get through some difficult stages. It was especially helpful if you go with children. Even for adults it was a challenge to go through some parts. Definitely, you will get wet so dress properly.
As a reward for our endeavors, we had a nice lunch at the local restaurant that served trout.

“the georgious gorge”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

this is very different, a mountain gorge with cool fast flowing water coming down from the mountains, platform tables over the water on which to have a meal, a drink or simply relax, lots of little restaurants serving fantastic fresh turkish food, for the more energetic try walking up the gorge its fabulous

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Well worth a visit to the gorge if you require a day out the sun as walking through cool water. We had a guide called Uzlam and he was excellent to help you to manage your way up the gorge.

“Wear sensible footwear”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

second largest gorge in the world, very impressive. Be prepared to get wet up to your waist for a stroll through the gorge. Well worth doing and you dry off very quickly down by the river on one of the flat beds when you have a drink later
