Kapuzbaşı Waterfall

Kapuzbaşı Waterfall

Kapuzbaşı, Yeşilköy and Derebağ waterfalls are located within the borders of Kayseri’s Yahyalı district, and the most important of these waterfalls is the Kapuzbasi waterfalls. It is reported that the rocks rising in a valley are called “kapuz” in Old Turkic, and the waterfalls are mentioned with this name.Another saying indicates there are those who convey the fact that the ancient Turks took this name because they played at the beginning of the waterfall at the beginning of the water festivities celebrated during the spring season (at the same time the state affairs were also discussed). Near the village of Kapuzbasi there are seven waterfalls, five of which are large and two of which are side by side.The waterfalls spill between 60–76 m high and are constantly flowing in summer and winter. The waters are merged with the Aksu waters of Aladag and confused with the River of Zamantı and the Seyhan River from there.The large waters of the Aladag summit, where the snow and glaciers are nourished, present a noisy, horrific and spectacular view. The second highest waterfall in the world, Kapuzbaşı Waterfalls is higher than the waterfall of Finland Imarot (25 m), Erzurum Tortum (50 m), Antalya Düden (5 m) except for Victoria Waterfall (100 m) in altitude flow and the altitude of the activity is 700 m.
