Trun Gorge of River Erma ​​​(Трънското ждрело на река Ерма)

This pretty gorge is right along the Bulgaria/Serbia border. The east side of the gorge is easily accessible from the village.  You can also cross the river via some very rickety wooden bridges – which is fun, but not for the faint-hearted!  There is a large eating are with many barbecue areas, so bring your lunch and equipment to enjoy.

With thanks to Bob Hall for submitting details of this walk.
