The ancient Roman city of Selge lies at an elevation of 1.000m (3,280ft) above the sea level, in the District of Manavgat, Antalya Province, in Turkey.
The road to the ancient city of Selge, located on the high mountains above a dramatic gorge cut by the Koprucay is asphalted with some narrow sections. This is an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the Taurus mountains. In the heart of Köprülü Canyon National Park (tr. Köprülü Kanyon Milli Parkı), the mountain road is pretty steep. Starting from the challenging Roman bridge in the Köprülü Kanyon, at 193m above the sea level, the ascent is 10.8 km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 807 meters. The average gradient is 7.47% with sections up to 10%.
