A gorge, also known as ravine or canyon, is a narrow valley with steep, rocky walls.
Gorges often have their own names, and many gorges are tourist attractions.
How to Map
Draw a line along the bottom of the gorge and tag with natural= gorge plus the name=* if relevant. If the gorge is part of a valley with another name, you can map both separately. A multilinestring is a handy but not yet approved (and not yet supported by most applications) method to do this.
