Create an itinerary including Saklikent Milli Parki
Hike around Saklikent Milli Parki and find out why its name means "hidden city" in Turkish. At 300 m (984.25 ft) deep and 18 km (11 mi) long, it is one of the most impressive canyons in the world. While you probably won't walk the full 18 km (11 mi) of the gorge, be aware that many parts are only accessible via uphill and rocky conditions or through various levels of water. Choose secure footwear, as many have seen their sandals washed away with the water. Put Saklikent Milli Parki at the forefront of your travel plans using our Fethiye trip planner.

  • Wear suitable footwear as you will be walking through the gorge in the ice cold water - not overly suitable for toddlers unless strapped to your back!

  • Great, wet experience 😊 We wore our rubber soled beach shoes which were good for climbing over slippery rocks, we also wore shorts. Walking through the water was a little chilly, it was knee high and above in some places, very enjoyable. There are guides to assist if required and a rope at the beginning is positioned for you to grasp while starting off, water is fast moving the further you go in but a really good experience to take part in on a hot day, the gorge is beautiful!
  • It was fantastic. One of the best places to see the power of nature. 5 or 15 km long, if I am not wrong. First 500 meters, you can go without the instructor "with low risk for your health and your property". But there are a few disadvantages: drowned walls and very annoying guides: they try to stick to you even for the first 500 meters. For the all-way long, they want 750TL. For 500m - 50TL per person. I advise you to take closed shoes with which you can go to the river and which river won't take with a strong flow. Also, you will need a plastic pack where you will put your backpack or other your stuff and be calm about your property getting wet. Also you have chance to get down of the river with little personal round rafts. 200TL for a person. In my opinion, it doesn't worth it. It was pretty short "rafting" (~15min), very safe (the river is 60sm deep), and the flow was calm.
