DAVIDE CIRILLO 02/16/2019
A place of unsettling beauty, smoothed by centuries of water and debris. The name Gurna Nigra (black pool) derives from the color of particularly dark water. The path is characterized by narrow gorges and natural ponds. It is a very dynamic environment: from year to year, depending on the amount of water fallen in the winter, the surrounding landscape changes profoundly. This aspect clearly influences the difficulty in ascending the riverbed. The first part of the route is also passable by novice hikers. Only the last part requires more attention and physical preparation. Once it was possible to make a part of the route using the "mastra" an irrigation canal built by the monks of the hermitage. The canal, in activity until the beginning of the 2000s, runs along the right flank of the hills adjacent to the river and from the village of Calatria to the Presa dei Monaci (in the dialect "prisa", ie the point from which water was taken from river). Damaged by the violent floods, the canal has been abandoned (to date only some stretches are passable). I recommend to all those who want to reach this wonderful place to turn to local associations or expert hikers. The best time for ascent is July when the water flow is minimal and the weather conditions are stable. Absolutely avoid the last weeks of August as they often occur sudden thunderstorms in the afternoon hours.
