We enjoyed every moment at the gorges especially swimming in cold river. They also sold fruit for just €2.50 which was an ideal healthy snack will sure visit again !!

What a stunning Gorge, crystal clear waters fall from a waterfall then rush through the valley, it's a great place to relax for a couple of hours. There are various activities like trekking and the one where you can slide along rocks (not my thing...More
