Fodor's Review

Continue south from Tlos to reach this spectacular gorge. It's a popular spot for picnicking and a wonderful place to cool off on a hot summer's day; children especially love wading up through the icy stream at the bottom of a deep rock crevasse. The first section goes over a walkway above the torrent to a pleasant leafy tea garden, beyond which the adventurous can cross the glacial water and carry on up the canyon. The first 30 minutes are straightforward; then the wading gets deeper and the rock scrambles more difficult, so know your limits—and expect to get wet. The road here heads south to Çavdir, which is just across the highway from Xanthos. If you don't have your own car, plenty of tour operators offer day trips. Make sure to bring water shoes for this adventure.
