In the village of Valencia, we park our vehicles at the car park at the popular Valencia River. Our river trek starts immediately where we trek upstream all along shallow waters until we come to an area where the rocks are all covered with calcium hereby giving the entire area a different look. There are lots of beautiful small pools around us and bathing here is just inviting. Further upstream trekking will eventually bring us to the little known but gorgeous "Gorge" where swimming here is fantastic with a combination of shallow and deep pools.
