Route 13 - Waterfall Canyon 2


Just a few minutes' walk from Turunç's bustling waterfront lies a stunning mountainside canyon with wet season waterfalls, a summer river-bed walk, and amazing mountain views. This is an easy walk to the back of the village on paved roads then on an easy to follow track with some loose stone in places.

Overview map

In the wet winter months the riverbed can become a torrent with water flowing from the mountain, so care is required if there has been recent heavy rain. When water is flowing in the river you should NOT attempt to walk along the river or get too close to the waterfalls. For most of the year, however, the riverbed is either completely dry, or dry with some isolated pools of crystal clear water suitable for a summer dip!

Thank you for the directions on this walk. We followed them carefully as it would be easy to go wrong without them. A lovely walk and we sat by the waterfall for a while and enjoyed the sound of it. Lots of wild flowers along the path. The path is rocky so sturdy shoes are a must. Fabulous views over Turunc as you descend. The suggested timing was accurate too.

Thanks Cliff Sue and I finally did this walk today and we are really pleased we did. The route was very easy to follow to the waterfall. I think we then went rather off piste to the top of the canyon and again a different route coming back down to 76 Sokak. All part of the adventure though, great fun and spectacular views.
