Tokali Canyon Civril

The deep, bottleneck formed by a stream carving in a calcareous area is called a canyon. Akdağ canyon stretches over an area of ​​20 km as a whole. 1600 meters altitude canyon Civril'in Gümüşsu (Homa) town 900 m. It ends at the altitude settlement. The 1200-meter-long part of the canyon consists of rock masses whose height reaches 200 meters in places, as if cut with a knife. The Akdağ canyon, which is formed by the stream flowing through these rocks, whose widest part is 4 meters and the narrowest part 1,5 meters apart, can only be crossed in 7-8 hours.

The canyon, located on the Sandıklı-Çivril border of Akdağ, is entered from Kocayayla and exited from Gümüşsu town. Local people did not approach to cross because they knew the canyon "impassable". According to them, even an animal cannot pass through here. Of course, when this is the case, the following rumor has been said among the people. “In the Roman period, gold was hidden behind a gold-clad door in the narrowest and most impenetrable part of the canyon. The amount of gold is 30 tons according to some and 40 tons according to others. But a rock the size of a car fell from the hill and closed the front-clad door. Since no one could enter the canyon, no one could say anything about the existence or absence of the treasure, while the amount of gold was increasing day by day.” This canyon, which is known to be impassable, was crossed for the first time on November 7, 1993 by a team of 10 people. After that, the Ministry of Tourism officials passed through the canyon and the opening of the canyon to tourism came to the fore.
The waters originating from the vicinity of Kocayayla come together to form Akçay, and the waters coming from the springs on the Çivril slopes of Akdağ form Karadağdere. The canyon is about to start from the point where these two streams meet. You can reach the entrance of the canyon with a pleasant walk by following the stream moving through a valley. As you get closer to the entrance of the canyon, the steep rocks and eagle's nests take people to a completely different realm. Starting from a small pond called Göbet, the widest part of the creek bed between the rocks is around 4 meters. On the other hand, the elevations of 200 meters, rising as if cut with a knife on the sides, are enough to describe the wildness of the scenery. Seeing the sun from this region depends on the meanders drawn by the stream. Some parts of the canyon can be walked and some parts are climbed. Sometimes it is passed by swimming in cool waters exceeding 1,5 meters. At the narrowest part of the canyon, 1,5 meters wide, the sky becomes invisible. Because a large rock mass at a height of 25 meters fell from above and got stuck between the canyon. The most difficult task is to swim under this rock, which is 25 meters high. After this narrow passage, the rise of the rocks gradually decreases and eventually turns into wide valleys and reaches the Çivril plain. When climbing the slopes from the stream bed, Işıklı Lake and Gümüşsu town can be seen. And after the canyon exit, you can reach Gümüşsu after a 2-hour walk.
