Nantahala River and Gorge

5965    

Nantahala is a Cherokee word meaning "Land of the Noonday Sun". The river runs through a narrow, steep gorge where the sun only reaches the ground when it is directly overhead in the middle of the day. The river is a great attraction for whitewater rafting, kayaking, and trout fishing. It is one of the 10 best trout fishing destinations in North Carolina.
