The Ihlara Canyon is the most amazing training throughout the Valley. It is close to the tiny town and Ihlara and is overwhelming. In addition to survey the land Cappadocia ocher feature can now walk on the bottom of a ravine, near a creek. The vegetation, noise and movement of the stillness contrasts with the barrel. This place was the preferred place of Byzantine monks for meditation and its easy to understand. Symbol of what is outside of time, in the still, of what remains ... the contrast with the bustling small stream is brutal. You have to take time to get away from busy roads, just stay and listen, feel these steep rocks that make it so on and so small our short lives of men and women.
Before going to Saklikent Gorge I had seen pictures with people walking through the canyon, there wasn't a lot of water in the river, which I guess is normal in the summer months. In May, however, the river was very high. It was really spectacular, but it was impossible to pass through the barrel. Only one hundred yards gateway you deeper into the canyon with walls more than a hundred meters. What I found most striking part of the water coming out of the very walls of the throat.
