Izmir and its surroundings have beautiful discovery routes. Nebiler Waterfall, which is not yet well known, is one of the hidden beauties.
With its lush nature, old plane trees, large and small caves, small waterfalls, pleasant walking paths, impressive landscape and sinkhole, Lovers Waterfall has the proper infrastructure to meet nature.
The restaurant, with the view of the green plane trees, where the sound of water rising from the waterfall is heard, is the first building that comes across those who want to see the waterfall. The waterfall is descended from a wooden staircase consisting of 86 steps. Especially for those who come from the long road in hot weather, the first step may be to relax in the restaurant.
When you pass 86 steps and reach down, you will see the Lovers Fall (Nebiler). A small pond has been formed due to the violence at the point where the water of the waterfall is poured. The surroundings of the pond have been the habitat for turtles and freshwater fish. However, it is useful to be careful because the environment is slippery.
On the opposite side of the pond, where green, old plane trees are shaded, there is a bungalow structure that makes Turkish coffee with roots. While watching the flowing water, while cool waters pass under your feet, you can sip your coffee and enjoy the environment. I think even the peace of water sound is enough to spend time here.
Ağlayan Cave is reached after a 10-minute walk when the steps leading down to the waterfall go up and walk from the right to the waterfall source. The waters that form the source of the waterfall flow with great force in a long way. The road surrounded by different types of trees and plants has some dangers. Therefore, it is necessary to come with walking shoes or sandals or slippers that are not slippery according to the season.
The drops of water dripping like a human cry in small drops on the cave have an impressive appearance. This cave is 271 meters above sea level. If you have the power to walk, it is possible to see Ece Caclayan at 900 meters and Sümeyra Waterfall at 1300 meters. We could not go up from the cave due to the fact that both our shoes and shoes were not suitable. If you feel good, definitely go up.
