Paradise on earth, KABAK VALLEY

For me traveling is spiritual, it touches my soul. Exploring the world puts a smile on my face and takes my breath away. It is a way of coming clean and reuniting with our nature.

Kabak Valley was that place for me to reunite my nature, my humanity… I spent a week in Kabak Valley, which is too close to Fethiye, Ölüdeniz Turkey. I never realise that I could find a hidden paradise so close to me, a secret world where there is just peace and quiet.

There are several activities you can do to explore its nature:Kayak Valley is part of ancient Lycian Way, which is a 540km trekking path in southern Turkey. So thinking about a grand tour on Lycian Way and stopping at Kabak Valley is a good option, if you like adventure.

There are waterfalls and magnificent Mediterranean view. You need to climb up to the mountain path, which takes 1 and a half hour but totally worth it. When you arrive there you will find yourself in a secret, heavenly place which you will never want to come back.

Kayak Valley is a naturally formed valley so you have some underwater caves to explore, by trekking or swimming.

Canoeing is beautiful in those clean turquoise, Mediterranean waters.

Laying down on the beach and forgetting about the chaos of the big cities is totally a good option.

Little bit about the touristic nature of Fethiye

Fethiye, Ölüdeniz has this incredibly beautiful sandy beaches located on a blue lagoon. It is highly touristic and famous for its beaches and… paragliding.

If you are anywhere around Turkey, you definitely should come to Ölüdeniz for paragliding.

Apart from paragliding, there are boat tours that can take you to close valleys and you can see the beautiful sunset.

Where I stayed

Shambala Kabak Valley: You can rent bungalovs with amazing views but you can also rent a camping place. We chose a bungalov and I think staying there was the best decision I made. Incredible view, very nice people, silent quiet place to relax.
