Beautiful gorge to walk around. Though, if you are scared of heights some of the platforms you might have troubles with. Wish there was more information on how/when the gorge was formed.

This was a nice hike from town. I do NOT recommend taking small children, the stairs are very steep and the ground uneven. There are blue pools there which are amazingly turquoise.

It's a tough slog getting up to it, but worth every step once you're down inside. We've never been this close to an active river still grinding an ever-deepening gorge like this. There are 170 or so stair steps leading down, through and back up...More
