The Gorropu gorge is the deepest Italian canyon, with walls up to 450 m high. It is located in the "Parco Nazionale del Gennargentu" and it is reachable with a 3 hour hike through beautiful strawberry tree woods. When entering the gorge I was quickly captured by the huge dimensions, but once I arrived in the core of the canyon what astonished me the most was the unbelievable silence.
