It is mine, water fights or something happened. When we visit that region, when that canyon is discovered, when we see and notice. Otherwise, that canyon has been there for centuries. The area that attracts everyone’s attention. However, they could not take full advantage. We are a metropolitan city by saying that we should not break the Olukbaşı and the Self. Acıpayam is a district rooted in its ancient history and they are our neighborhoods and villages. We wanted it to be Acıpayam Canyon. I think Acıpayam Canyon looks good. It embraces both the Self and our Olukbaşı. Over time, when thousands of people begin to flow there, both the Olukbaş and the Self will not remember the old days, the bad days left in their memories. Because the economic power of that region will change. We believe that both the Self and Olukbaşı, that region and Acıpayam will win. Turhan Veli Akyol, our Provincial Director of Culture and Tourism, came with his team and university teachers.
