Take in the sweet smell of fresh air and the calm of rushing water at Orrido di Bellano, a waterfall and gorge. This natural attraction is the result of water erosion that took place over 15 million years ago. Explore the gorge and waterfall via thin wooden platforms which lead to a lookout point with a spectacular view of the sparkling lake below. The narrow path travels through the rocky crevasses lined with ferns and shrubbery, and the fall's powerful force provides an awe-inspiring retreat in a very scenic spot.

This is a must see! Seriously one of the most beautiful things in nature I have ever seen! It will take your breath away! It will definitely get your adrenaline pumping being that high up and hearing the roaring waterfalls! Makes for some great pictures and amazing view of the town at the exit.
The Orrido di Bellano is the main tourist attraction of the town and one of the most important of Lake Como. This is a natural gorge created 15 million years ago by the erosion of the River Pioverna and the Adda glacier which, over the centuries, have shaped the rock into gigantic potholes, dark ravines and suggestive caves. The narrow canyon can be visited thanks to a system of footbridges anchored on the high walls overlooking the water, perfectly illuminated in the evening where the charm of the place takes on different nuances, and that recently have been extended to reach the large waterfall located further upstream.
