Saklikent Milli Parki, Fethiye

#1 of 34 in Nature in Mugla Province
Must see · National Park · Canyon
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.

  • This place is so beautiful especially sitting by the river,when you are hot sitting there really cools you down.The gorge is one of the biggest in Europe  more »
  • We both really enjoyed our visit to Saklikent. Make your way up the boardwalk to wade through the ice cold waters on to the other side and in between the natural rock of the gorge. A great experience.  more »
  • It's an amazing walking trail in one of nature's wonders. The canyon gets so narrow on occasions that when you look up you can only see the sky through narrow cracks. WARNING: They provide you with rubber walking shoes and hard hats at the entrance of the trail. The hats are there for a real good reason. So, do NOT make the mistake of neglecting them! Large and small stones fly down the cliffs frequently, and they pose a real life threatening peril. Rubber shoes will protect you from stepping on sharper objects inside the stream.
  • Really good (tiring!) day out. Gorge walking/scrambling can be done by everyone, although there are some hard parts that guides can assist you reaching and taking photos. Can buy appropriate shoes at the shop for 20 lira. Also places to get food and different activities like rafting. Would recommend!
