Pathways, wooden bridges, and rest spots were built as a result of the work done in the valley and began to serve tourism. One of Turkey’s major tourism hubs, Mersin, is where new routes are being developed. There are attractions in the city for both nature and sea enthusiasts, with a coastline that extends 321 kilometers to the Mediterranean.

Every year, visitors are welcomed to the facilities at the entrance of the Kayaci Valley in the district of Erdemli, which makes a significant contribution to nature tourism. This year, an ecotourism field study was conducted by the Regional Directorate of Forestry and Erdemli Branch Directorate in cooperation with the Erdemli Branch Directorate and the Regional Directorate of Forestry.
Forest staff constructed a 3.5-kilometer walking area as part of the project. To cross the stream in the 3.5-kilometer walking area, wooden bridges, paths, and rest spots were constructed. The valley, which draws attention with its wooded regions, sound of running water, and variety of bird species, has taken on a special significance as an ecotourism destination.
Young people who came to explore the valley and enjoyed swimming in the chilly Limonlu Stream throughout the hike brought attention to the area’s stunning natural surroundings. The work done, according to young people cooling off beneath the natural waterfalls, added a different value to the area.
