ENJOY A MUD BATH
Saklikent canyon has a few natural mud ponds along the trail, which you can use for a free facial mask. The minerals in the mud are supposed to soften the skin, tighten the pores and draw out toxins.
PROTIP : Try to take mud from the one where people didn’t walk over too much.
You can also leave cool handprints over the canyon’s stone walls if a facial mask isn’t for you. It’s fun!

HOW TO GET TO SAKLIKENT GORGE?
The easiest way to get to Saklikent Gorge is by renting a car and driving there yourself from either Kas or Fethiye. However, if going by yourself is not an option, don’t worry, as there are daily tours from both Kas and Fethiye.

WHAT ELSE TO DO IN SAKLIKENT NATIONAL PARK?
There’s more to do in the national park except trekking through the canyon if you have more time, like tubing, rafting, canyoning, bungee jumping, ziplining, etc. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to do that so we don't have pictures from there.
