canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Fosso di Riancoli
At a certain point, unexpectedly, the large forested canyon with which Fosso di Riancoli reaches the valley of Turano reduces to a narrow corridor carved into the white rock, entirely occupied by beautiful pools of unusually large size, interspersed by low waterfalls. The pools' size is due to very large winter floods (Riancoli's basin is wider than the average), but in summer Riancoli gets dry because this is a karst area.
The narrows of Riancoli are probably the most known and repeated canyoning trail in Sabina.

To say it all, they were lucky too in meeting us ... Their team was made by a man (the leader) and 4 women, and only the man wore
a complete wetsuit. 2 women had no piece of wetsuit at all! None of them had a backpack or emergency gear ...
