: Zamanti River is a river in Central Anatolia, Turkey,
crossing Kayseri Province in practically its whole course to
join Seyhan River further south, of which it is the western, the
longest and the most important tributary. Zamantı and Göksu join
80 km north of Adana to form Seyhan River.
Tracing a curvy course through the narrow valleys and cascades
of the Taurus Mountains ( called Aladağlar in this section ),
the river is one of the most favorite rafting spots in Turkey,
particularly in its section around the town of Yahyalı, rated 3

The River Zamanti is very dense at Taurus Mountains and flows in
places through very narrow and deep valleys. There are two
natural bridges on the river 4 km to the west of YEŞİLKÖY,
having a distance of I km from each other. YEŞİLKÖY Falls exists
at the mouth of the first ground bridge. The second one is

limestone bridge which is 100 meter.

is reached a wonder of nature hidden at this corner of
Aladağlar, will meet the visitor.
There is a set of water falls flowing with a roar down the
slopes of the valley to the east and south of the hill called
Ensenin Tepe near Kapuzbaşı village, bewildering the viewers.
The water, originating as springs from the slopes of the valley
and forming water falls, discharges into Suarası Deresi and then
joins the River Zamanti.
There are seven sets of lakes, five of which are big and two of
which are small, and each has an average height of 40-60 m and
has enough water to feed one stream.
Although the place of origin is the same groundwater, they come
out from different places. Had they come out from one place,
they, certainly, would have been among the biggest / largest
falls of the world.
Forming a set of falls side by side in a narrow and deep valley,
having its water in abundance throughout the year and having
considerable heights, Kapuzbaşı waterfalls are among the major
falls in the country.
