Paklenica National Park

Paklenica
Paklenica National Park is located in the southern Velebit. It spans from the Adriatic coast to the highest peaks of Velebit. The highest peak is Vaganski vrh (1757 m). The Park is most famous for Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica, two deep gorges cut deeply into the massif. They cut across the mountain and stretch all the way to the sea. There is nothing but hostile karst area between the two gorges. They were cut by streams rushing down glacier-covered peaks of Velebit after the last ice age. Because of its steep gorges and unusual cliffs, Paklenica is particularly popular with climbers. There are easy routes for beginners, as well as demanding climbs for expert rock climbers. Because of protected bird species, you can only climb certain parts of the cliffs. But you can also hike, walk, cycle, go bird-watching or peek into the caves.

Mala paklenica_kanjonKanjon Male Paklenice dugačak je 12 kilometara, a na najužem dijelu širok je samo 10 metara! Taj kanjon prohodan je samo ljeti, kad nema vode. U vrijeme jakih kiša i otapanja snijega, poniranje vode stvara posebne zvukove koji odjekuju kanjonom.
