The slope of the river varies from 80 m / km (at the top) to 0.2 m / km (at the bottom). In the upper reaches, the valley is V-shaped, 100–700 m wide, sometimes canyon-like (40–60 m wide). The area is poorly developed, many sloping areas. The width of the river is 15-30 m (45 m maximum), up to 2 m deep. In the middle reaches, the valley is mostly box-shaped, with a width of 1-2 km to 4.5 km. The width of the floodplain is 200–300 m, the river beds are 30–50 m (the largest is over 100 m). The lower section of Latorica has a distinctly wide valley. The width of the floodplain at the bottom reaches 4-6 km. The mainland here is winding, there are sleeves, in separate sections channels.
