On its way from Komovi, which is 145 kilometers long, Tara River has created a canyon, which is almost one hundred meters long and 1.3 kilometers deep. Tara Canyon is second deepest in the world (right after Colorado Grand Canyon), but judging by its beauty, it would surely be in the first place because of its crystal clear water (drinkable throughout the flow) and vast variety of flora and fauna, whereas most of said species are endemic. Tara River is protected as UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Canyon and River have fulfilled three conditions (only one of which was enough) in order to become part of UNESCO: geological, hydrological, and biological phenomenon.
