Getting to know the canyon is easy since there's an accessible path going to all its gates. It's green and the river inside it makes beautiful landscapes. There's also a small cave church, San Antonio who takes care of children (that's why there are so...More

This is a great gorge walk which can easily be done in half a day but as you get further into it it requires a fair bit of scrambling so not for those wary of heights. There are fixed ropes and wooden ladders on certain...More

I just want to say that although this is a pretty gorge it is not for the feint hearted. You have to use ropes and ladders and crawl. Not for those un fit or not strong. Tavern at entrance is disgusting. Crawling with Flies. caged...More

There has been a large rockfall and it is questionable whtether it is safe to traverse. I went as far as the Aldo's and ropes and perhaps fifty more metres before turning back as my friend was not keen. I would not recommend this to...More

This is a nice small one hour walk in shadow but good shoes needed. The paths are narrow at some points and you need to climb up and down. Not suitable for very small children.

We were on a hop on hop off bus tour and didn't realise you could actually go into the gorge, so we're glad we discovered it by accident! This is a must - there's beautiful scenery, a decent walk (a little tiring but in a...More

The walk begins relatively unchallenging, but then come the ropes and the ladders, the scrambling and climbing! The gorge is shady, so pleasant to walk in, but take water and a snack, because although not very long, it is slow going for ordinary mortals like...More

To try and clear up confusion in previous posts: 1. The walk to the church is easy and to observation point also easy, but more uphill. Both extremely worthwhile. 2. The loop walk around the 2nd bridge is more tricky, attempt only if reasonably fit...More
