some ladders help us in the canyon
The name of the canyon is "Rám-szakadék" in Hungarian. The Ram-Canyon is a narrow valley known as "Three springs valley" that is pinched in the block of Ram mountain, and because of the location it is amazing and one of the most frequented valleys in this area. During the prehistoric age the assembled rainwater carved deep valley into the mountain created the Ram-Canyon. The canyon could be travelled out with a bit of care. You can find many kinds of different volcanic layers in the narrow and steep valley.
The canyon is about 1.2km long.
The best time to visit this place is a dry period in summer. The canyon can be dangerous. Some people have been seriously injured in this place. Flash floods might occur, so watch the weather forecast. In winter there is not problem about flash floods, but it is slippery, mostly on ladders. So be careful every time.
In an unwritten tradition says that the Earth’s heart’s force center is near the canyon .
