cookieless, no-ads, no threats canyon exploring with
Riu Meriagu Mannu
In the granite rock of southern Sarrabus there are the quiet cascades and the pools of Riu Meriagu Mannu. A full mediterranean authentic sardinian scenery opens to the eyes. Emotions come from the intense beauty of the 37 meters cascade, falling down a big rounded granite plate.
I remember ...
In Sardinia canyons open through different kind of rocks: limestone, granite, metamorphic sandstone, basalt, ... Each kind of rock gives canyon landscape peculiar forms and colours. However all of Sardinia's canyons have a common feature: oleanders.
In Sardinia oleanders are much bigger and higher than in Italian Peninsula. In every river bed they form little dense
forests that canyoneers have to pass by moving like snakes, finding a way between branches and trunks.
A better way appeared when we were sat in our car ... That might be the right way to exit the canyon, but we realized
a bit too late ...
