What makes Tara River great for a white water rafting
Tara is 144 km long, which makes her the longest river in Montenegro.
What’s more significant about Tara River is the fact that is cut into one of the largest canyon gorges in the world and the deepest in Europe. The Tara River cuts the Tara River Canyon, the longest canyon in Montenegro and Europe and second longest in the world after Grand Canyon, at 82 kilometers in length and 1,300 meters at its deepest.
Tara is so clean that you can drink water from it and it is the largest clean water source in Europe. The whole stream receives large amounts of water from numerous sources and creates waterfalls and cascades of unusual beauty. There are more than forty cascades and the roar from the cascades is heard on the very peaks of the canyon. On the course of Tara there are rocky and gravel terraces, surrounded by thick pine forests, sandy beaches, high rocks, and more than 80 large caves.
In the Tara valleys, you can find some leftovers of the tertial flora right out of the last glacier period. Beside this flora, the plant life in the canyon is characterized by forests having very different species: cerris, ash tree, beech, black beech, and birch.
The main inhabitant of lofty peaks and stony slopes is the wild goat. Besides the wild goat, as regular inhabitants of the canyon region, there is the roe deer and wild boar. Also, it is rich in fish species. In the river the brook trout may be found, huchen, chub, the clamp, etc.
It’s no wonder that, since 1977, Tara is under the protection of UNESCO.
