cookieless, no-ads, no threats canyon exploring with
Fosso Catachilla canyon descends along the rugged and wild slopes of the Laurenzana valley, offering a relatively simple canyoning route, to be tackled preferably in winter or spring but also enjoyable in summer.
I remember ...
The valleys surrounding Laurenzana stream are harsh and wild, yes, but they are still places that man has used for millennia for sheep farming, agriculture and timber. The overbearing force of Calabrian nature makes the vegetation re-appropriate very fast the land subjected to cutting or devastated by a fire, making houses and dirt tracks disappear, perhaps with the complicity of a landslide destroying the only existing road to that place. That's why descending Fosso Catachilla means finding yourself completely alone in a truly wild environment.
