Saklikent meaning 'hidden city' in Turkish. The gorge is 18km long and 300m; one of the deepest canyons in the world. It was opened to the public as a national park.
It is accessed by walking along a rickety wooden walkway that is secured to the side of the gorge. The views along the gorge are breath taking, because there is very little light, the water is icy cold.
When we got to the bottom of the gorge we walked through a shallow part to the other side and oh boy! it was freezing. Considering the temperatures above the gorge were about 90f and the water was so icy cold it was quite a phenomenon,
After the trek across and along the gorge we stopped at a remarkable trout restaurant which was built on floating platforms.
We had yet another delicious lunch of barbecued trout with meze and freshly baked bread. I swear that it was the sweetest, nuttiest trout I have ever tasted.
Time to sign off now and have a quick snooze, still trying to fight off the nasty bug that has beset me,
My sincere thanks to our special deviser of ABCW the sensational Denise.
Also thanks to the superman Roger who systematically sorts and controls the daily doings of ABCW.
