Duden Waterfall

Duden Waterfall

All the streams of the region aim at finding their way into the Mediterranean and they pour down the slopes of the Tauros, sometimes overland sometimes underground and, reaching their destination, result in lovely waterfalls, of which there are more than twenty. The loveliest of these are the Duden Falls, 15 km. north of Antalya, the Kursunlu Waterfalls 18 km. along the Antalya Alanya highway and those of Manavgat 3 km. north of the town.

When arriving at the waterfall you will need to pay an entry fee and get into a nice green park with botanic garden, open tables and benches inviting you for a picnic. Always you can hear the sound of the falling waters shimmering beautiful ice blue through the trees. All the area is kept in nice condition and the view onto the waterfall is great. Some stairways leading down into the valley where you can walk along the river. Some other springs deliver more water to the Duden river, so this is falling into the valley as well. Because of all the Tuff minerals in the water there are some place where stalagmites and stalactites are still growing, the heart of speleologists would immediately start running in higher frequencies.

For sure highlight of this sight seeing event still is the big waterfall which is giving lot of noise and steam of water. Once climbing down into the valley you will find the way leading into the Tuff cave behind the waterfall. It is like getting below roofs build from natural material Tuff further and further growing down into the valley, so that after thousands of years the corner where the water is falling moved away from the rocks. There are certain natural rooms in the cave connected by small paths, some of them seem to be broken by human beings. Even so, you can watch the waterfall from the back side as well. There is another stairway leading up to the walkway of the park again. Total length of the cave may be about 40 meters.
