History


Description

Çatak Kanyonu Cam Terası (Catak Canyon Glass Terrace) is a rare way to visit a canyon. The gorge is very inaccessible and requires physical fitness, appropriate equippment and a skills. So the visit of the gorge is a real and demanding canyoning trip. Much easier is a visit on the unique outlook above the canyon. Not the first such glass terrace, the first was the one an Grand Canyon, but as far as we know the only one in Turkey. And not everyone wants to stand on a glass floor above a several hundred meter drop. For those with height problems there are normal outlooks nearby which are less demanding.
