The meanders, the winding course of the rivers which are natural wonders of the Black Sea region of Turkey, have dazzled visitors with the blooming of spring with their unique and enchanting views.
Perşembe Plateau at an altitude of 1,500 meters (4,921 ft) in Aybastı district of Ordu, where naturally wonderful meanders and plateau lake meet, welcomes visitors every season with its clean air and landscapes .
The plateau, blanketed in white after heavy snowfall in March, revealed its green texture as the weather rose above seasonal norms.
Perşembe, which usually welcomes those who come from surrounding provinces during Ramadan, fascinates its visitors with the sounds of water flowing in the meanders as well as the chirping of birds all around.
Ertuğrul Koç, who came to the plateau from Başçiftlik district of Tokat, told Anadolu Agency (AA) that it was the first time he saw such high water level on the plateau and in the meanders. .
“Although the water is plentiful, it offers a unique beauty here,” he said.
Koç explained that he came there at every opportunity, summer and winter, to picnic or set up camp.
“Our sets are very close to each other. At the same time, I welcome tourists who go on tour to my home. When they come to the region, our first job is to tour the natural wonders. I also advise them to come here. This environment is not found anywhere else. That’s why I want everyone who comes here to know the value of the plateau and not pollute the environment. The plateau and the meanders are a wonderful blessing for people .
Hakan Ateş, who spent time with his friends in the area where the meanders are, said that he loved nature very much and did not want to leave when he visited the Perşembe plateau and meanders.
Ateş said natural features give people peace and happiness.
“There is no point in describing this place. You have to see it in person. I came back here with a friend recently. Other friends who have been here are also planning to come back in the future. This place is very nice for people who love nature.”
Melih Koç also pointed out that he enjoyed being on set and having fun.
Koç said he had taken pictures before on a bridge over the meander.
“I was surprised to see that it is now under water. We enjoy it no matter summer or winter. We also have friends from different provinces who come to see and hear the meanders. We welcome them here in the best possible way and let’s make sure they have fun.”
