Even that most advertisement about Alanya claims the opposite the sun does actually not shine all the time.
If you have already visit Dim and Oba rivers where you can go in Alanya when the unbearable July and August hot weather comes?
We recommend you to visit Sapadere mountain village at the 48 km northeast of Alanya and 20 km away from Demirtaş. Between 2007 and 2008 municipality built walking lanes in wonderful Sapadere canyon. Their purpose is to present the natural beauties better for the visitors and extend the tourism in a wider area. As a result of these work a restaurant and couple of small shops are serving in the area now; simpler ones compared with Alanya.
At least it is possible to visit breathtaking Sapadere canyon without climbing equipments. You just need to pass Demirtaş through curved and cliffed mountain roads. Serde river in this area dries by July and it is only enough for to water upper village fields. The water flows during the whole year in Sapadere and they head it to the villages in dry season. You can reach the water with ladders in the canyon and enjoy the refreshing water. We are talking about real refreshment here because the water reaches highest 12°C in the warmest term of the year (0°C sensed). At the end of the 600m long walking lane you will find the most attractive point: the waterfall and it is still possible to swim here.
You will be amazed by the various little waterfalls, rare plants, little animals and birds during your visit.
You can reach Sapadere easily through Demirtaş village with a car or a motorbike. The entrance fee is 2 YTL per person. (August 2008)
