Duden Waterfall - Tsunny.com
Düden Waterfalls are a group of waterfalls in the province of Antalya, Turkey. The waterfall, formed by the Düden River (one of the major rivers in southern Anatolia), is located 12 km north-east of Antalya; which ends, where the limpid waters of the Lower Düden Falls drop off a rocky cliff directly into the Mediterranean Sea in a dazzling show.
The magnificent place at Duden Waterfall is about 10 kilometers distance to the beaches South East of Antalya and can easily be reached by public transportations or with a rented car on well prepared asphalt roads. Over here the river Duden is leaving a higher plateau of the Taurus mountains by falling about 15 m deep and 20 m wide onto a lower plateau next to Antalya. Because of the raw ingredients in the water, huge amounts of Tuff stone ( volcanic ) materials have formed the river bed as well as a cave below the waterfall.
On The Entrance they charge entry fee and you can get into a nice green park with botanic garden, open tables and benches inviting you for a picnic. Always you can listen the sound of the falling water shimmering beautiful ice blue through the trees. All the area is kept in nice condition in peace and the view onto the waterfall is fascinating.
Some Stairways leading down into the valley where people can walk along the river. Some other springs deliver more and 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 today, 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 steam of water and a lot of noise. The waterfall colud be watched from the back side as well. There is one more stairway leading up to the walkway of the park again. Total length of the cave is about 40 m.
