Ok, so most of the reviews here say this is an easy to moderate hike. Perhaps something gets lost in translation as I found this quite challenging. For some perspective, I’m an energetic female (regular runner) in my 50s and I’m very well accustomed to...More

In the hot season it was a pleasure to visit and hike through this small gorge. 80% of the paths are easy to walk with a very short but quite steep hike up to a lookout point. At the end of the gorge the trail...More

Very impressive walk . In some places you must climb up and down big stones, thus, your footwear must be closed. We went through the gorge twice, not difficult.You can plan your time, enjoy amazing views, see even kri-kri. But you should go back the...More

It is a beautiful natural place to have a walk. You will see the river, the bridges and the tiny church. Small but lovely gorge, short enough to make it a nice day trip with even kids since it is easy to walk. There is...More
