The Taurus Mountains are one of the main geographical features of southern Turkey.  Their western end near the Turkish Lake District, the mountains form a "smile" shape which extends past the area north of Adana, fading into the Armenian Highlands.  They separate Turkey's Mediterranean coastal region from the Central Anatolian Plateau, although they sit mostly in the country's official Mediterrean Region.  The spectacular landscapes of the Taurus Mountains can be seen from a drone perspective in this excellent piece by prodronemovie.

Köprülü Canyon Drone Views


Safari in Antalya


The geology of southern Turkey lends itself to the creation of canyons, one of the most famous of which is Köprülü Canyon.  Seen here in this drone video, the canyon along the Köprüçay River runs for just under 15 km (a bit under 9 mi.) through the Antalya province of Turkey's Mediterranean region.  The canyon has a maximum depth of 400 meters or around 1.3k ft., making it one of Turkey's deepest.  Most of the great gorge is part of one of Turkey's national parks.
