Kanjon Tare

The Kanjon Tare (Tara River Canyon), is the longest canyon in Montenegro and Europe and the second-longest in the world. It is 82 kilometers long and is 1,300 meters at its deepest. The canyon is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is located in the Durmitor national park, in the northwestern Montenegro.

Don’t forget your camera! The rapids that surge their way along its course are guaranteed to thrill rafting enthusiasts. Gorges and waterfalls alternate throughout this stunning trail. Canyon of river Tara  is a unique phenomenon in its depth of 1000 and 1300 metres in some places. It ranks just behind the Grand Canyon of Colorado River in the United States. It is the longest river of Montenegro with its course of 150 km and at the river end, just a small part of it, flows through Bosnia & Herzegovina. Tara later flows into Drina river. River Tara has its average fall of 3.6m/km, and it makes whole bunch of waterfalls – rapids and cascades which give a big compliment to national park Durmitor, which River Tara belongs to. 
The surface of the road is a bad asphalt. River Tara has a lot of special places, but the most valuable ones are its cascades. Roar of some of its cascades can be heard from the very edge of the canyon. Most famous ones are: Djavolje laži (Devil’s lies), Sokovina, Bijeli kamen (White stone), Gornji and Donji tepački Buk (Upper and Lower Tepački cascade), etc. 
The road is difficult and it’s a nightmare in the wet or dark (or both). When it comes to fauna in the locality of River Tara mountain goats should be mentioned. Beside wild goats, deer and wild boar can be found here. River Tara is also rich in fish especially brook trout, salmon, grayling, chub, etc. In the place Djurdjevica there is a large bridge. Its construction began in 1938 and it was finished 1940. As the time passed this bridge became one of the symbols of this river. Even though it is build by human hands, when looked from above it looks like a natural part of Tara’s curves. It perfect fits into natural environment. The bridge is 154 metres long and its 135m high.
