In the valley, has come to create a complex system of small waterfalls and natural reservoirs (locally called "uruvi") often for swimming. The highest altitude reached the plateau on the bed of the river is 520 m above sea level, but it is close to the viewpoint of Avola Antica, which, with its 507 meters, the river reaches its maximum depth. Also in this section reaches its maximum width of 1200 meters. In the 10 km length of the canyon, as mentioned, you can admire numerous colorful lakes, with fresh and very clear water.
