WHAT IS GORGE WALKING?
Gorge walking, is an adventurous outdoor activity that involves traveling through natural canyons or gorges using a combination of techniques such as walking, climbing, scrambling, jumping, swimming, and sometimes a little rope work. The goal is to navigate the various obstacles presented by the gorge environment, which can include waterfalls, rock formations, pools, and narrow passages.
Participants typically wear wetsuits and safety gear such as helmets and harnesses to protect themselves from the elements and potential hazards. Gorge walking is often done in areas with flowing water, and participants may need to swim across pools, slide down natural water chutes, and leap into plunge pools. It's an exciting and physically demanding activity that requires a reasonable level of fitness, a willingness to get wet, and the ability to handle uneven terrain.
Gorge walking can be done as a recreational activity, team-building exercise, or as part of outdoor adventure programs. It's important to engage in gorge walking with proper safety precautions and under the guidance of experienced guides or instructors who are familiar with the local conditions and potential risks. This activity is a great way for families and those younger adventurers to experience nature up close and challenge oneself while enjoying the beauty of canyon environments.
As a gorge contains natural rock formations, chutes, and various challenges to overcome, we naturally want to conquer them. But how?
