Tazi Canyon Tour from Side is a journey to the most picturesque and deepest gorge of the Köprülü National Park.
Get a tour to the kingdom of endless valleys, dense thickets of coniferous-deciduous forests, and sheer cliffs that bent over a seething mountain stream. Here, at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level, Turkey will reveal itself from a completely different side, without the gloss of luxury hotels, the sea, and the golden beach.
History of the area. The Tazi Canyon Tour from Side is not limited to visiting one observation deck. The active program begins in the village of Beshkonak, where tourists, having transferred to powerful jeeps, go to get acquainted with the beauty of the Köprulu nature reserve and its sights, which have become available for visiting since 1973.
The area itself has a history rooted in the past for many centuries, when the Koprulu Cay River, which was then called Evrymedon, broke through its deep, strong current in the rocks a crevice 14 kilometers long and 100 meters wide, thereby forming two banks connected between themselves by the stone bridge Oluk, built in the 2nd century BC. by the Romans. The bridge was repeatedly destroyed, rebuilt, reconstructed, but in the end, today you can not only look at the monument of antiquity but also cross it to the other side in order to continue your walk.
Tazi Canyon Tour from Side, There is another memorable place 11 kilometers from Oluk, where you can rarely meet crowds of tourists. Having passed, along with the stone masonry of the bridge, the narrow road leads further, revealing fantastic panoramic views of the mountain landscapes, and then dives into the thicket of a dense forest, and now behind it is the city of Selge, once the most densely populated and strategically important settlement of ancient Pisidia, with developed trade and agricultural business. It was here that the 5th century BC. minted the first coin. Its fertile land was the object of desire of many peoples who tried to conquer the impregnable city, built on a hill 1300 meters above sea level. However, the locals managed to maintain their independence for more than 3 centuries.
Now there is little that remains of its former power: a theater for 10 thousand spectators, the remains of the temples of Zeus and Artemis, and barrels for storing water.
But a little further begins something that is definitely worth paying attention to - a place called Adam Kayalar, translated from Turkish as "people-rocks". Huge stone giants are involuntarily associated with the petrified army that stands guard at the entrance to the ancient city.
