The canyon with its nearly 10 technical descents, and water conservation even late in the summer, offers the opportunity for Canyoning, even for jumping on its impressive piers. Canyon ideal for those who want to get started in canyoning, without much walking or technical difficulty.
There are several waterfalls that form ponds at the base, some of which are really deep. Its steep walls are nestled with wild and rocky turquoise.

Halfway through the gorge, it opens, becomes swampy and then one can enjoy the shade of the plane trees, rich biodiversity with predominant Cyclamen populations.
There is an ancient aqueduct in the Havos Gorge, while significant paleontological finds have been exposed in the wider Cambodian and Lower Cambodian areas.
