The time of the Turks was one of the most important shelters of the Homoljian rebels. Entering this canyon for them meant salvation, because the Turks never dared to follow them. The legend says that after the Battle of Marica in 1371, the horsemen of Prince Lazar came to this region, staying there for a certain time, from where the name of the river and the canyon comes from.
The canyon is about 9 kilometers long and between 300 and 500 meters high. The entrance to the canyon is in front of Lazarsko Cave, where it is the perfect place for camping because it has a source of drinking water that does not have a canyon. The canyon is pretty inaccessible, there are no tracks and the terrain is extremely difficult. The canyon, among other things, abounds in poisonous snakes.
If you want to visit this place, you have to prepare well, because it is a real challenge for adventurers.
