Dark Canyon ( Kemaliye )


Although it goes by several different names, Turkey's Karanlık Kanyon is definitely on the top five lists of many of the world's canyon-rankers.  Carved out by a major subsidiary of the Euphrates River (one of the ancient world's most important waterways), the canyon runs through a portion of Turkey's Eastern Anatolia region.  Top contributor and pilot Alp Karagule filmed this marvel by drone.  When you're watching this aerial video, you will appreciate the meaning of its name, which translates to "Dark Canyon".
