Approx. 25 km’s from Beldibi to Kemer towards the mountains … after a while you will pass a bridge and then a forest … after that park your car and start hiking … The passage that is within the forest of the montains has an excellent view. The river just right by the passage is very effective with its ice cold crystall clear water and spring water. There is also an exciting canyoning activity starting from further above the passage and lasts for about 3 hours. Only recommended with a pro guide and the right equipment to rappel down waterfalls. A tour costs about 40€.
A canyon and waterfall that can be reached 8 km from Beldibi towards the mountains. Different than Kuzdere because, from time to time you need to swim or climb up the rocks in order to pass the canyon.
