Private Daily Tlos Ancient City,Saklikent Canyon tour 

Tlos Ancient City is one of the six principal cities of Lycia (and one of the most powerful),Tlos once bore the title under the Roman empire of ‘the very brilliant metropolis of the Lycian nation’.Tlos is one of the oldest and largest settlements of Lycia (known as ‘Tlawa’ in Lycian inscriptions) and was eventually inhabited by Ottoman Turks through the 19th century.There is evidence that This was a member of the Lycian Federation from the 2nd century BC.Two wealthy philanthropists,one of which was Opramoas of Rhodiapolis,were responsible for much of the building in the 2nd century AD.Inscriptions tell us that the citizens were divided into the names of three of them which are known Bellerophon,Iobates and Sarpedon,famous Lycian legendary heroes.

Tlos lies on the east side of the Xanthos valley,and is dominated by its acropolis.This rocky outcrop slopes up from a plateau with a charming village, but ends on the west, north and northeast in almost perpendicular cliffs.On its slope are several Lycian sarcophagi and many house and temple-type rock-cut tombs cut into the face of the hill.

The influence of many cultures upon Tlos has resulted in an interesting collage of structures.It is a romantic place with lush nature and most of the buildings are covered with vines.Yaka village co-exists with Tlos and the fields and pomegranate trees make for very picturesque scenery.Tlos is a popular destination for tours from the coastal cities.The whole area it is situated in is beautiful with many small villages.

Saklikent Canyon is around 50 kilometers distance from Fethiye and its 18 kilometers long and 300 meters deep one of the deepest canyons in the world.Large amounts of melting snow in the Taurus Mountains pass through the Saklikent Canyon and reach the Xanthos River.Approximately 4 kilometers of the canyon is suitable for walking.Special equipment and experience are required for further exploration.Sensible submersible shoes with grips are essential as the stones beneath the water can get quite slippery.When you walk over the bridge to the entrance, the first thing that strikes you is the huge,10 meters crevice in the rock.There is just one obstacle before you can walk through the canyon,and that is crossing the river.A narrow walkway suspended from the rock wall will take you into the gorge.

Once inside,you reach the Ulupinar springs where water bubbles up under great force from the base of the cliffs and you wade across the stream into the gorge proper to begin your walk.The fresh mountain water is notably cold so you should be sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting wet.

The water is very shallow(normally above the knee)but may be deeper in other parts depending on the month you visit.The canyon walls create all sorts of shapes as you look ahead of you,and if you have a camera,you will find plenty of photo opportunities on the way through.After you have walked for around 40 minutes,you will come to a waterfall and if you want to go on further,you should prepare your special equipments and be ready to get wet.

When you have finished walking through the canyon,it is time to take a break.You can relax in a variety of places in the area near the river or in the wooded area,have a drink and buy souvenirs, local products,honey,soap,spices etc. from small shops operated by the local people.Saklikent is great fun for all the couples,families and groups and is a memorable experience.
