Natural Wonders For The Adventurous
The forest of the National park consists of common spruces. Besides, there is a species typical of the area which is called Sığlatree and has spread in certain regions. There are also small Mediterranean tree species such as Holm, wild olives, berry trees, carob trees, celtis in the National park. There are also bezoar goats in the forest.
The Saklıkent National Park is well developed, the paths are given, shops offer food and souvenirs. However, the place is also quite remote: You can stay nearby only on a small campsite, the nearest hotels are located in Fethiye, about 40 kilometers away.
The well-attended path leads over a wooden footbridge high above the water, which ends at the point where the gorge widens somewhat. Here we continue on the floor and stone through the water: probably the one who has Bermuda.
