The Tazi Canyon tour from Side is one of the most impressive tours that will become favorable to lovers of exciting landscapes and extreme activities. In just one day, you will enjoy breathtaking views, gain adrenaline rush and even travel to another planet.
The canyon is probably the leader in beauty and scale among the country’s natural attractions. It is located in the Köprülü Canyon National Park, a unique nature reserve in Turkey.
The Internet is filled with colorful images of this place. This canyon is famous due to its steep cliffs with a height of 200-400 m. They stretch along the mountain river Köpräy with emerald water, which from above seems to be a thin thread. The greatness and severity of nature are complemented with fancifully curved trees planted in rocks.
The journey starts directly from the hotel. The trip from Side takes about 1.5 hours on a comfortable bus. The first stop is the village of Beškovnak. Here, the guide talks about local attractions, and the group moves into jeeps or cabrios jeeps and goes to the top of the canyon.
Overcoming steep upheavals and turns cause astonishing emotions: blood-stirring trembling, mixed with delight and admiration, a feeling of complete freedom and excitement from speed. Proven and high-speed SUVs make it absolutely safe.
In Tazi Canyon, tourists are given free time to take panoramic photos from viewing areas, which are located on the edge of seemingly bottomless abyss.
After a little rest and lunch, you are transported to the ancient city of Selge. It was founded after the Trojan War on the southern slope of the Taurus Mountain Range at an altitude of 1250 m above sea level. Over time, the settlement became one of the most powerful and densely populated in the historical region of Pisidia.
It’s an extremely colorful place. A huge amphitheatre for 10,000 spectators, the ruins of the fortress walls, the temples of Zeus and Sanda, the stadium and the gymnasium have survived to this day.
The visit to the locality of Adam Kayalar (in translation from Turkish «people-rocks») completes the program of the tour. It is often compared with the Pandora planet from the famous film «Avatar». Huge stone pillars are inadvertently associated with a stagnant army, which became the eternal guardian of the ancient city of Selge.
The program is suitable for family recreation and people of different ages. In the trip the following things will be useful:
To move easily in the mountainous terrain, dress in a sporty style and put on shoes on a stable sole that fixes the leg well.
