Sokobanja is a landscape of exceptional beauty. Waterfall Ripaljka is one of the largest and most beautiful waterfalls in Serbia. Unfortunately, the river Gradašnica is dry in the summer and autumn, so it is best to visit this waterfall in the spring. Distance from Nataly Spa is 3.7 km (road to Ozren). The mystical mountain Rtanj, which is mentioned in various legends, is the right place for hiking and day-long walks in nature. In the foothills there is Vrmac Lake. There is also a must-see cavern at 19 km from Nataly spa facility.
