A magical walking trail in a vintage gorge that mostly passes over hanging wooden bridges, an experience full of shimmering water with mesmerizing colors. The route is relatively easy, short, flat and rich in views.

Author’s recommendation

* It is recommended to arrive at the place as early as possible in the morning in order to find parking close to the entrance and avoid the increasing load of visitors towards lunchtime.

* It is recommended to be equipped with a raincoat as well as waterproof shoes as in many parts of the route water is splashed and the road is wet.

* The length of the route and the calculated walking time is one way.
