The gorge Rudi is particularly important, being 5 km long and 250 m deep. Fissures of odd forms, made by wind, are well defined. On windy days, depending on the direction of the wind, the fissures emit melodic sounds. This effect has earned them the name of “wind harps”. Forests dominate the landscape. There reserve has several springs.
