Jelašnica gorge is positioned in the Southwest of Suva mountain, 15 km from Niš. The Jelašnica River cuts its way through limestone rocks of Suva mountain and creates a real rarity of the nature – the Jelašnica Gorge. In the length of only 2 km, many different morphological forms can be seen, as well as a large number of endemic and relict species.


Jelašnica gorge is the first climbing ground in Serbia designated only for sports climbers. There are more than 200 free climbing routes with completely attested equipment.
