All the way from Bicaz Gorge is formed by streamers, after every curve you find landscapes of a rare beauty. The eyes follows water, that is jumping foamy over the rocks, her sping fills our ears with sounds of small waterfalls, then climbes to dazzling heights, watching every corner of rock. Limestone walls of rocks hide caves (Cave Black – 35 m length, Cave Falls – 69 m) and potholes (Licas, Pothole with three entries).
