  • A mandatory place to visit. Reminiscent of the gorge at Petra in Jordan, only much smaller. Especially good to visit here on a hot day. Goats can be found different colors. The Gorge itself pretty quickly ends, but you can go further, a very scenic place

  • Fantastic days walk up the gorge and out the other side,turned right and back down one of the many tracks which bought us to the 'last castle' for lunch.
  • nice ... note, please don't leve garbage everywhere...respect natura
  • Super trip. Dont miss it and have a good shoes to finish several kilometres through rocks and caves. Meter after meter you will experience stunning views, high cliffs and oases with beautiful plants. Dont miss it! Good sport.
  • Excellent trek. Kept me cool. Wasn't certain when the end of the trip was. The best part was trying to get past the dripping water - I had to put my camera in my rucksack, for safekeeping. Seen some mountain goats on the way back down.
  • Beautiful gorge! You can clamber all the way through it in about 2.5 hours, just make sure you have a map to find your way back, take plenty of water, wear sturdy walking boots and don't give up!
