Medium Trekking to the highest waterfall in Sardinia, walking through dense forests and a spectacular granite gorge. The ideal time for this route is the beginning of spring and autumn when the rivers are rich in water and the waterfall can be seen at the height of its beauty.

The waterfall of “Piscina Irgas” is located within the protected area of “Monti Mannu” covered by a lush mediterranean maquis, Holm oak, Cork oak, Holly and an underground with intense aromas. We follow a woodland path (113 trail) that leads to a clearing where we can marvel at the waterfall with its jet of around 45 metres (148 Foot). The waters have over time forged large potholes, from where they run fast along a gully between Holm oaks, Arbutus, Heather and Oleanders then merge downstream in the stream “Leni”. Francesca Falqui, Enviromental and Hiking guide will lead us in this trek.
