Vorotan Gorge is one of the wonders of the Syuniq region, which is constantly exposed to the destructive actions of human activities. Soon, there will come a tragic day when this gorge will disappear completely. For thousands of years, Vorotan was enjoying a peaceful, nonchalant life. No one was disturbing its tranquility and beauty. Then suddenly a man, drawn by the greed of making money, began to spoil the ecosystem of the Vorotan gorge. The river that has fed humans, watered their crops and given them life, has turned into a miserable and dolorous rill. The lands surrounding the gorge became barren, the rumbling thunder of the gorge that was once accompanying the chirping of the birds muted, the seemingly eternal vegetation of the gorge died out.
