The Cha gorge

This is an article about canyoning in the gorge of Cha or Xa. Be aware that when me and my friends Antonis did the gorge there was minimal protection (I think one or two bolts) and we place ourselves all the belays with slings, nuts and friends. That has been made back in 1998 if I remember well. However, nodays the gorge is fully bolted and many canyoning schools passing it without issues. I haven't update the article as it is a story that I want to remember, especially those days where the term canyoning meant nothing to us wink

We are going to deal with the latter.
