The mountain is divided with deep river valleys. The rivers are more numerous and richer with water on the north side and have deep valleys and a large longitudinal fall. Thus, on “Zrnovska” river there are many waterfalls.
The western and southwestern slopes are bare with developed erosion, while the other parts are under the forest.

On the mountain Plachkovica there are three beautiful canyons: “Kamnik”, “Kozjak” and “Zrnovka”, which are abundant with natural beauties such as rivers, waterfalls, slopес, high rocks …
