Saklikent Gorge

Meaning “hidden city” in Turkish, the spectacular Saklıkent Gorge offers dramatic scenery and a variety of outdoor activities, making it a must-visit for families and adventure travelers. Extending for 18 km (11 miles), this rock chasm – carved by mountain streams rushing down from nearby Ak Dağ – reaches a depth of 480m (1,575 feet) and is so narrow in places that no sunlight reaches the bottom.

From the entrance, a boardwalk built into the cliff face leads to a spit of land that juts out into the water at the point where the Gökçesu and Ulupınar springs emerge vigorously from the canyon. Built out over the water on wooden platforms are a handful of eateries – a relaxing place to grab a simple bite or drink as you sit back and listen to the sound of rushing water below.

From here, you can make your way into the narrows by wading through the ice-cold water, which – depending on the season – may come as high as the waist. Adventurous travelers wanting to traverse the entire length of Saklıkent Gorge may wish to join a guided canyoning tour, as the sheer rock faces can be slippery and difficult to navigate. Other activities offered included river rafting, and there are even rustic treehouses where visitors can stay overnight.

Practical Info

Saklıkent Gorge is about 40 km southeast of Fethiye. The easiest way to visit is on a guided tour, but you can also drive or take a public minibus from the minibus terminal in Fethiye.

It’s open daily, May to October 8am - 7pm, November to March 8am - 4pm and admission is 6 TL.
