Gorropu gorge, Sardinia, Italy

Gorropu gorge

Gorropu is an enormous gorge caused by a tectonic movement. It was later eroded both by the water of the river “Flumineddu” and by atmospheric agents. It has cliff faces that are higher than 400 meters. Trekking excursions start from Dorgali, going first through the Oddoene valley. After crossing the “Sa barva” bridge the route runs along the “Flumineddu” river to the entrance of the gorge. Rich vegetation lines the sides of the road. Inside the gorge we follow along a riverbed of the river that now flows underground and comes up every now and then, like for example at the spring at the entrance to the gorge.
