The length of the stream is 70 km. Spring time is the most suitable season for rafting. The course starts by the eastern side of Güzelbağ and after running for about 20 km ends with the Alarahan region of Alara Town, which was an important place of the ancient Silk Road.

The difficulty class of the course is belongs to  class 2 and 3.

Alara Han

It was built on a spot 9 km north of the Alara Stream that forms the border between Alanya and Manavgat, and 45 km from Manavgat. 

The Alara Caravanserai, which is 35 km from Alanya, had been built by Sultan Alaaddin Keykubat in 1231 from cut stones and on an area of 2000m2. 
The second gate on the Caravanserai’s entry, leads to where the visitors accommodate. This is a worth seeing structure with its guardroom, fountain that even today preserves its functionality, small mosque and hamam. 
The two lion heads on the gate entry are spectacular. Currently, it only serves as a daily tourism facility.
