We climbed gradually upward around the waterfalls that here feed Lake Gavanovac. An unusual geologic process occurs here as water from underground karst areas uphill reemerges teeming with dissolved carbonates of lime -- which, in turn, form a crust on vegetation, thus creating travertine or tufa. This ground formation can span streams, creating natural dams. Eventually the water breaks through, creating cascades. This has been going on for thousands of years.
