Manavgat Falls.

Manavgat Waterfall on the Manavgat River is near the city of Side, 3 km (2 mi) north of Manavgat, Turkey. Its high flow over a wide area as it falls from a low height is best viewed from a high altitude.[1]

The white, foaming water of the Manavgat Waterfalls flows powerfully over the rocks. Near the waterfalls are shady tea gardens providing a pleasant resting place.[2]

The Oymapinar Dam is located 12 km (7 mi) to the north of the river.[3]

During floods, the Manavgat Falls may disappear under high water.[4]
