The “Orridi di Uriezzo” (ravines of Uriezzo) are the amazing and sculptural results of the erosion caused by the waters that ran through Valle Antigorio following the last of the four glaciations of the Alps: the Wurmian Glaciation, which happened thousands of years ago when the Toce Glacier was more than 1000 mts thick.
The melting of the glacier gave birth to many rivers that, by vigorously flowing, generated many powerful waterfalls that managed to carve the rocks with their energetic and swirling motion.
The flow rate of Toce gradually reduced, leaving these deep ravines at sight. In Italian they are called “orridi”.
The itinerary goes to the discovery of Orrido Sud (southern ravine), called “Tomb of Uriezzo”. It’s the longest and most spectacular, with gorges as deep as 30 mts.
