Pictures Images photos of the Tortum Water Falls, Coruh Valley, Erzurum in the Eastern Anatolia, Turkey. The Tortum water falls are the largest in turkey with a drop of 164 feet (50 m) and 15 meters wide. Geologists believe they were formed in the Quaternary period by a massive landslide which blocked the deep steep sided Tortum Valley. This resulted in the formation of Tortum Lake which is 8 km long, 1 km wide and 100 meters deep. The water in Tortum Lake is exceptionally clear and has been used to supply, via underground tunnels, the turbines of the Tortum Hydroelectric Plant since 1960. Surplus water from the lake runs over the Tortum Falls which means that they are at their most spectacular when excess water from the spring snow melt floods the lake.
