While we strongly recommend you to see Dokuzoluk, those who go here for a picnic should prefer weekdays or Saturdays if possible, and those who go on Sunday should set off early.

The canyon on the  Eğlence Stream was formed by the erosion of the limestone structure by the stream. Water springs gush along the walls of the canyon, making Dokuzoluk one of the unique places that must be seen in Adana. The water in the canyon is clear and quite refreshing, and it is possible for those who can swim to reach the end of the canyon by advancing 100 meters.
