Manavgat Waterfall Trip from Alanya
Manavgat river is 93 km long. It is one of the largest rivers in Turkey in terms of water capacity. The water flow rate is high in both summer and winter months. There are two dams on the river. These are the Oymapınar dam and the Manavgat dam.
The source of the river is Akdağ near Beyşehir Lake, at the west of the Taurus Mountains. In the places where the river originates, the water flow is relatively weak. The river grows by being fed by various sources as it flows towards the Mediterranean. The biggest source it feeds on is the Dumanlı source.
Manavgat waterfall is not a very high waterfall. It is poured from a height of 4-5 meters. But the width of the waterfall is very long. In addition, the flow rate of the poured water is very high. It has an impressive atmosphere with its snow-white foams and the sound of water. When the waters of the waterfalls pour strongly through the rocks, water mist forms in the air. The waterfall gets full marks from the visitors with its fascinating atmosphere.
