Standard Engraving:

    The word Nantahala is Cherokee and means "Land of the Noonday Sun". The river runs through a narrow and steep gorge where in some areas the sun reaches the ground only when it is directly overhead during the middle of the day.

    Waters flow from the highest mountain lake in North Carolina, the Nantahala Lake, northward into the Nantahala River Gorge. The Nantahala River winds and rushes along its nine-mile course before flowing into the tranquil waters of Fontana Lake. This river gorge is a display of beauty and wonder in the Nantahala National Forest.

    Explore eight miles of the Nantahala’s class I and II white water rafting rapids before splashing through the river’s only class III drop, Nantahala Falls at the end.
