If you are walking the Ragga gorge for the first time, be prepared for jaw-dropping astonishment. Seeing this natural wonder is an absolute must-must. The mighty Ragga torrent cutting its way through the gorge with a deafening roar makes conversation impossible. Because the gorge is so deeply cut and so narrow, in some places you can no longer see the sky!
