After progressing about 100 meters along the river bed, turn around and carefully retrace your steps to the main track, rejoining it at the stone cairn. Turn left on the main track to continue your route up hill. The clearly marked track ascends gently at first, becoming steeper near the top. The track divides occasionally to bypass obstructions but always rejoins a little further ahead. Take care on loose or wet rocks underfoot. Take some time to stop and appreciate the tranquillity and views of the canyon, looking down into the river valley below, and also forwards to the rugged mountain tops. It is hard to believe you are only a few minutes away from the bustling Turunç village centre! As the track becomes steeper, and you approach the top, a rusty water tank appears, capturing spring water from the mountains, and still in use today. Just beyond this tank the track disappears and you CANNOT proceed safely beyond this point. Please do NOT try! Enjoy the views and then turn around and retrace the track down the mountain for a short distance.
