Things to do


  • Most of the time, when we think of canyons, we picture natural formations with majestic cliffs and mountain rivers that have shaped them over many centuries.
  • But the Green Canyon is different. It's the largest man-made reservoir in Turkey, created because of the construction of a dam in 1984 in the Taurus mountain valley. In ancient times, this area had several lakes and the Manavgat river course, supplying fresh water to the ancient city of Side. After the dam was built, these waters formed the Oymapinar reservoir, which covers an area of about 500 hectares, with a maximum depth of 130 meters. Additionally, the reservoir is fed by 27 underground springs. No matter the season, the water temperature doesn't rise above +12°C. The canyon got its name due to the abundance of greenery around it and the lake's rich green color, which is caused by the iron-rich water.
  • Today, the Green Canyon is also a National Park. Tourists from all over the country's southern coast visit to escape the heat, enjoy the cool atmosphere, admire the emerald waters, mountain landscapes, and the pomegranate, citrus, and pine groves that fill the air with a unique scent.
