Duden Waterfall in Kepez
Located approximately 10 km from the center of Antalya, this natural wonder waterfall takes its source from Kepez Hydroelectric Power Plant. The point called Dudenbasi is also revealed. At this point, it splits into two branches and forms the Duden Stream.
This Stream, which is formed, pours out from the travertine, which has a height of 40 meters, towards the Mediterranean after approximately 9 km. Even when there is no water flow from the surface, at least 10 cubic meters of water per second comes to the surface under the waterfall. While the maximum flow rate of this water to the surface is 94, the average flow rate reaches 15-16 cubic meters.

You can see the waters pouring into the Düden waterfall from some places inside the cave. You can see the most beautiful view of the waterfall from inside the cave.
