Route 9 - Waterfall Canyon

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 river bed 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 water falls. For most of the year, however, the river bed is either completely dry, or dry with some isolated pools of crystal clear water suitable for a summer dip! In addition to the river bed, or as an alternative in wet weather, an easy path ascends the side of the canyon providing amazing mountain views, and unusual aspects looking back to the village. The path is rich in interesting wild flowers and insects. At the top of the track you will find a small water tank. Do NOT attempt to go beyond this point as the track becomes impassable with dangerous drops and loose scree. The return journey simply retraces the same route.
