MOUNT HERNIO (1075m)
Across the Northern slopes of Ernio, there are forests of Beeches and Oaks. Between the stones of Ernio, a moon milk river flows, the only one of the world. It is, in fact, formed by a strange substance that nature pours off in solid state and underground Ernio, filters off in liquid state.
This river was discovered years ago by a scientific society but its exact location/source is still secret to prevent its exploitation. (2 hours up, 1:15 hours down)
