Antalya, at the turn off for Tasagil and Beskonak, is the scenic route
that leads to the Koprulu Canyon National Park. The twisting road
crisscrosses over mountain streams and passes through virgin forests. It
is often a slow drive as the view at every turn is more beautiful than the
last. The park, 92km from Antalya, is a valley of wild beauty rich in
flora and fauna. The canyon stretches for 14 km along the Kopru River and
is 400 meters deep in some places. Fish restaurants dot the rest areas.
The Roman Oluk Bridge, which spans the canyon, and the Bugrum Bridge over
the Kocadere stream, are engineering feats of antiqulty. From this park
you can make two possible excursions to the ancient city of Selge and to
the Dedegol Mountains. Dedegol Mountains, the highest peak in this
mountain range rises to 2,992 meters.
