Ovcar-Kablar Gorge is a protected natural area with about 150 species of birds, 30 species of fish and more than 600 plant species. It is distinguished by steep, high limestone sides with several caves. The gorge was carved between 985 meters high mountain Ovcar in the south and 889 meters high Cablara in the north, after which it got its name. Ovčar spa and famous monasteries are located here.
Uvac is Special Nature Reserve known by its meanders with a height of up to 100 m. The canyon is the habitat of 104 bird species, most notably the Griffon Vulture - vulture species, with a wingspan of 3 meters, which role in the food chain in the ecosystem is irreplaceable - it only feeds on dead animals, which prevents the spread of infection and it is important in "natural recycling." Ice cave is part of Uvac cave system, the longest cave system in the country (6185 m). It is rich in cave ornaments.
