Manavgat River: Twisty Tail of a Magical Waterfall
In Alanya Manavgat Boat Trip, we’ll visit Manavgat River, one of the longest rivers in Turkey, with a huge fame. It flows along a very picturesque area, creating a natural path that pleases tourists’ eyes. It extends along enormous mountains, lush jungles and strikingly beautiful places. Also, thanks to its norturing content, a unique flora and fauna have been formed around it.
To help making you know more about this amazing natural reservoir, we will take a walk in Manavgat National Park. Here you’ll see interesting plants, turtles and other animals.
Let’s See the Symbol of Postcard Pictures
The main attraction of the park and region is Manavgat Waterfall, doubtlessly, which is another stop we will have a break. This waterfall is not only our relaxtaion point, but also famous image on postcard pictures in Turkish souvenir shops, righfully. There is no other gorgeous one like Manavgat Waterfall: Even if its height is only 2 meters, its width is rouhgly 40 meters! Falling streams of water shimmer in all shades of blue and green, it even reflects off the lush greenery around.
Even if it is not a natural waterfall but a man-made dam, it still is quite spectacular. There are observation platforms on both sides of the waterfall, making it possible to admire the view and have beautiful scenes for memory.
Visit to A Sacred Place
After arriving to Manavgat City, we will visit an ancient mosque, which is the symbol of the city. With its four 60-meter-long minarets, it proudly reaches to the sky and greet its curious visitors gracefully. In front of the mosque, there is a special place for ablution before entering the mosque for prayer. And even this part of it looks very beautiful. Also, thanks to its peaceful atmosphere and look, you’ll feel as if you arefilled up with harmony and peace.
Sailing to Where the Sea and River Meet
When our visit to the mosque ends, we’ll come aboard and enjoy a boat trip along the Manavgat River. Being carried through the water by the currents of mountain waters from the top of the Taurus Mountains, we’ll be in ultimate peace.
Since the water in the river is very clean, there is a wide variety of fish such as trout, carp, mullet and seabass. So, on the way, we will visit one of the trout farms located on the river bank.
Here comes the best part: At the end of the boat trip, we will arrive to the point where the river and the Mediterranean Sea mix each other. During our break here, you can lie on the sandy beach, as well as you can swim in the mixture of salty and fresh water. Our crew will be on aboard to prepare a delicious grilled lunch for you.
