Recomendable hacer el descenso integral, la primera parte cuenta con saltos y rápeles increíbles, además no hay casi grupos. En la parte media ya te vas encontrando más gente pero si vas temprano no suele haber problema. Increíble actividad que nunca olvidaras.

Magnifique !

La gola è veramente molto bella e le foto che la illustrano sono realistiche. La discesa è lunga e varia e consente il divertimento sia ai principianti sia a coloro che hanno più esperienza e vogliono osare salti da altezze notevoli.

Great activity

Did a full day canyoning experience. Must do with Nuri! And must do full day (9am-4/5pm)! We drove a 1/2 hour up the mountain (Nuri is an amazing driver) to skip a two hour hike up. Then hiked it down for another half hour to get to the gorge with our gear. We'd jump and climb down with gear. Highest jump was 9m near the start of the trail. Gotta have good form! Not many people at the first half of the day until lunch. After lunch there were a lot more groups! Luckily we had Nuri who overtook the others. It was only 3 of us with Nuri and her friend which might have helped. Am going to look for canyoning everywhere I go now!
