KARPUZKALDIRAN WATERFALL

 

Düden Waterfalls are a group of waterfalls in the province of Antalya, Turkey. The waterfall, formed by the Düden River (one of the major rivers in southern Anatolia), is located 12 km north-east of Antalya; which ends, where the limpid waters of the Lower Düden Falls drop off a rocky cliff directly into the Mediterranean Sea in a dazzling show.

Lower Düden waterfall (named also: Karpuzkaldıran waterfall)

This waterfall is the highest as it is approx. 30 meters high and the water gushes down onto the massive rocks with great force.This waterfall is located in Antalya, near Lara, and can be reached with the old coast street as well.

 

There are many water resources in Antalya region starting in the high peaks of Taurus Mountains, traveling underground or over the land for many kilometers and finding their ways to the Mediterranean in the end. During this voyage, the billions of water drops come together to form the most beautiful waterfalls showing the strength of nature once again. To name some of these waterfalls are the Duden Falls 15 km. north of Antalya, the Kursunlu Falls 18 km. along the Antalya-Alanya highway and that of Manavgat 3 km. north of Antalya. Last but not least is this Karpuzkaldıran Waterfall at the very hearth of the city in Karpuzkaldiran-Lara district just completing the grand journey to reach the great sea. During the hot days of Antalya, it is very refreshing and exciting to visit these waterfalls.
Just a note: The local name “Karpuzkaldiran” means “lifting the watermelon” in Turkish.

DÜDEN WATERFALL

 

Düden Waterfalls are a group of waterfalls in the province of Antalya, Turkey. The waterfall, formed by the Düden River (one of the major rivers in southern Anatolia), is located 12 km north-east of Antalya; which ends, where the limpid waters of the Lower Düden Falls drop off a rocky cliff directly into the Mediterranean Sea in a dazzling show.

 

At the 28th and 30th km of the old route from Antalya-Burdur (which goes through Dösemealti town) there appear two big Karstic sources. These sources, Kirkgözler and Pinarbasi which are very rich waterwise, coincide after a very short flow and they disappear finally in Biyikli Sinkhole. Some of the sinkholes are so big that they can swallow a huge river or a big lake. In this region there are the Sugla (Konya) big sinkhole the Biyikli sinkhole with its output of 30 m³/s. This quantity is the output of Kirkgöz and Pinarbasi springs at inundation.

The water which disappears at Biyikli Sinkhole goes 14 km underground and comes out again at Varsak pit; after a very short fall it disappears again from the other end. To understand the mechanism correctly you must follow the map and schema. The water which disappears at Varsak goes underground for 2 km and comes out again at Düdenbasi by pressure made by a syphon. The water which falls from Düdenbasi is the water coming from Kepez Hydroelectrical Complex. By all these actions (water coming in and out) Kepez Hydroelectrical Complex has been built.

By means of regulator built in front of the Biyikli Sinkhole, the waters of Kirkgözler and Pinarbasi are directed into a canal and then by a long canal to the Kepez Hydroelectric Plant to the collector from where by a pressure pipe it is carried to the balancing funnel and then dropped over the plant's turbines.

The water from the plant's discharge unit is brought to Düdenbasi again by a long canal where it forms artificial cascades. From there the amount of water is that of a large river and this water by means of seven irrigation trenches is used to irrigate the land north-east of the city of Antalya.

After Düdenbasi the waters of Düdençay separate into a number of streams and finally east of Antalya at a height of 40 m plunge from a platform into the Mediterranean in the form of cascades.

KURŞUNLU WATERFALL

The Kurşunlu Waterfall is located 19 km from Antalya, Turkey at the end of a 7 km road branching off to the north of the Antalya-Serik-Alanya highway at a point 12 km from Antalya. It is reduced to a mere trickle in the summer months.

The waterfall is on one of the tributaries of the Aksu River and its situation in the midst of a pine forest is of quite exceptional beauty. The countryside around the water forms a lovely picnic and pleasure spot only twenty minutes from the centre of the city of Antalya.

The cluster pine is the dominant tree species in the area, with small groups of eastern plane, laurel, carob, wild olive, mastic, willow, fig, myrtle, oleander, blackberry, wild rose, tamarisk, spruce, kermes oak, thyme, wild mint, beech tree, bracken and ivy. On the water, there are clusters of water mint, bamboo, water chandelier, and green water lily.

Animals like wild boar, fox, rabbit, squirrel, bat, hoopoe, woodpecker, stock dove, carp, water tortoise, snake and lizard are live in the Natural Park.
