The gorge of the torrent Rosa

The third day of this year’s summer trip to the Orsomarso range would not take us to its lofty ridges or any of its splendid peaks. Instead of climbing up a mountainside we would follow the Rosa torrent up its course to the its cataracts and pools of crystal clear and icy water.

After a short night in the tent close to the river bed and breakfast at the town center of the Calabrian Village of San Sosti we took up the small hiking path that leads up to the mouth of the heavily vegetated gorge.

Here only a few impressions from a hike up the wild and beautiful gorge of the torrent Rosa (ita. fiume Rosa):
