Saklikent gorge is up to 1000ft deep in places and a guided tour through to the top of the gorge is great relief in the very hot summer. It is half an hours drive north of Kalkan and inland. The fees are very reasonable and discounts are available for students with their Student ID. Once inside you can get a guide who for a small fee for your group will take you and guide you up the gorge. Wear swimwear and get some diving shoes like you would wear on pebble beaches or for coasteering. You can hire or buy them at the gorge but we always think that your own are always best. They also come in handy when walking on hot sands instead of flip flops.
