Düden waterfall on the cliffs of Antalya

On the old route from Antalya - Burdur (passing through the town of Döşemealtı) two large karst springs come to the surface, to which we have also published an article. Our visit to the German Consulate now let us visit the waterfall of these springs again.

A park accompanies the watercourse to the sea and also the waterfalls, which has created an attractive tourist attraction. From the sea you can also take a boat trip from the marina of Antalya to see the waterfall from the sea.

Even from the top a beautiful sight, when the masses of water with a loud roar fall into the sea.
