Big Deer Canyon« Back to list
Big Deer was not given its name lightly. It has some huge features to negotiate - some require ropes, some a deep breath and a leap into nothingness, and some you can slide. Take your eye off the chasm in front of you and you might even enjoy the scenery too.
The final waterfall is a breathtaking 35m drop. Not for the faint hearted!
