The gorge is a unique monument of geological development and an area of diverse and significant flora and fauna. In the near vicinity of Ovcar Spa, on Zapadna Morava river, two artificial lakes (Ovcarsko-Kablarsko and Medjuvrsje) were built; they offer numerous possibilities for sports fishing and tourism. Next to a nicely decorated camp there is a swimming pool with thermal mineral water, so the bathing season is open from May to September.
