Characteristic Features

Located 5 km ahead of the triangle of Mut - Gulnar - Ermenek, Yerkopru Waterfall is formed by a narrow canyon due to the fractured calciferous rocks and a formation of a spring of highly carbonated water as a result of the fracture about 110 million years ago. One of the most impressive waterfalls in Turkey, Yerkopru Waterfall offers an unforgettable visual feast to visitors with its impressive view from a height of 30 m of a green valley.

The cavern that looks like a bridge is the most beautiful place and the source of the waterfall fed by Gezende Dam. The movement of the water where fed and sprang out presents marvelous scenes in colour combinations as well as the falling of the water over the mosses hanging amazingly. When looked towards the cave through the side of the waterfall, a lake floored cave is seen in 200 m in length and 8 m in width beyond the cloudy view. The blue green colour of the lake and dropping water down the ceiling of the cave is like a wonderland.
