Very nice and interesting gorge. Steep climb over rocks, tree roots and stairs. Morning few people, quiet, afternoon full. The walk takes about 1.5 hours It is possible to have a beer in the parking at the end.

It was a great walk with very beautiful nature. Take care of good shoes. Amazing expierence. Waterfalls were very nice. With the Karinthië card you get a discount. If you are here for a longer time, that may be beneficial.

Perfect walking through canyon with most exceptional feeling and view on the surroundings including creek and rocks in the canyon. Although is not long walk (<1000m), it is slippery and somewhere pretty steep walk, so it is not for very small children.
