All are in the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve, which is a network of almost untouched forests; subalpine and alpine meadows, and rocky-lichen landscapes in the Carpathian Mountains.

All three rivers meet the Platinum Wilderness Quality Standard, because they represent excellent examples of unmodified rivers, surrounded by untouched, old-growth beech forest.
