Karacaoren Baraji – reservoir area 45 km2, built in 1977-1990 years in the mountains on the Aksu river (it flows into the sea in Antalya) for soil irrigation, flood control, and generation of electricity. Ещё в водоёме разводят рыб 🙂
How to get to the Karacaoren Baraji reservoir?
The small proportion Karacaoren Baraji is located directly along the road D685 (Antalya - Isparta). However, the main part of the reservoir 1 km from this road (there is pointer, but it is very small, so it can easily pass) and 70 km from Antalya. So the reservoir is located on the territory of HPP (by the way, it generates 32MWt of electricity or 132GVt per hour), then enter only upon presentation of documents (passport, IKAMET), you will write to the log and open the gate. Then follow the signs, One road will turn to the left (there you can see the main part of the lake), second – on the right (there is a dam, fishing spots and better quality roads). Мы повернули направо 🙂
This place is definitely interesting and beautiful, but in hot weather there is nowhere to hide – fishermen catch fish on a rod and sit under umbrellas. В водоёме также были замечены крабы 🙂
