Nice lady at information office in Zonza told me that it is dangerous and only for canyoning enthusiasts with special equipment. BUT In my opinion it is nice trekking to see beautifull canyon.

The hike can be a little tough but the reward is so big that you won't regret all the effort you made to get there. Don't stop at the first pool you'll see but keep climbing to see how beautiful the canyons of Bavella are.

Canyoning in Purcaraccia canyon was fantastic. The path from the parking to the starting point was quite steep and difficult taking about 1 hour but then it was so much fun! The two 40m rapels were quite easy and suitable for begginners if acompanied by a professional guide. The water is very cold, so a shiny day is a prerequisite.
