The road to the Tazi canyon from Side is already a separate journey. 90 km along the road to the village of Beshkonak, in the province of Antalya, where the National Park originates. In the village, travelers change their vehicle and, after a brief safety instruction, change to large off-road jeeps.

The rafts are designed for 6-8 seats, each team has an experienced leader who will help in any difficult situation.
Near the Agva gorge and the ancient Roman bridge of Kesme, our journey will begin on open jeeps, which will easily overcome 14 kilometers of steep mountain serpentine.
Jeeps have been considered the most popular all-terrain vehicles for tourism for decades. The 4-wheel drive makes off-road driving comfortable and safe.
The tour program is great for family holidays and has practically no restrictions, but it provides for a fairly large physical activity. Based on this, it is not recommended to visit the excursion for people suffering from heart and musculoskeletal ailments, as well as with children under 3 years old and pregnant women. Dress code - comfortable clothes and shoes with stable soles, well-fixed foot. If the walk falls on the summer months, when the air temperature varies from +25 to +40, it is worth taking care of the supply of drinking water and protection from the sun's rays, because you will not find shops at the top. In the autumn-spring period, on the contrary, warm clothes will not be superfluous. It is important to remember that the mountains set their own rules: the wind blows stronger, the sun shines brighter, and the air is cool and refreshing.
For a mass visit to Tazi, the canyon from Side was opened in 2017, a place untouched by the hand of civilization, without any signs of infrastructure and fences, has retained its original appearance. The country's authorities are actively monitoring the local order.
