Fethiye guides: Places to visit & things to do in & around Fethiye – Saklikent Gorge
Saklient Gorge is a travelers’ favorite daytime excursion in Fethiye. Translated into ‘Hidden City’, the canyon is 300 meters deep – one of the deepest in the world – and 18 kilometers long. Four kilometers of the gorge are open for keen hikers after April, once the water from the Taurus Mountains has melted and passed through the canyon on its way to the Xanthos River. With its sculpted walls soaring high above, the gorge is a majestic place to explore and delivers a unique adventure: climb up rocks, pass through waterfalls or go rafting on primitive rafts made of truck tiers.
