A beautiful gorge which starts very close to Eleonas holiday cottages. I raced up and down in 2 hours but I would recommend taking longer to enjoy the views!

We did several gorges in Crete - this one was undoubtedly the lost challenging one. It was mid-morning 25-30 °C, some light to strong winds on the path. A landslide had cut some parts of the normal walking road but the getting around path was well signposted - as was the whole path to the gorge. We tried to make a circle but found after 2.5 hours the whole exercise too challenging so went back the way we came. On the walkway, especially in the higher parts of the gorge, there are very nice views. The church is nice to see but we could not find the entrance, unless we would go over a very shaky bridge. If you do this walk, do not go on very hot days, take water, have excellent shoes, and enjoy the taverna at the lake after finished.

The trail is really great. We went there halfway march. The water flows till halfway of the gorge. Because of the heavy rainfall in the past mont some of the pars of the trail were destroyed. Passing these places was difficult. It is not recommended to undertake this journey with kids. It took 3 hours to reach the picnic site at the end. Walking back took us 2,5 hours.

A wonderful walk up a spectacular gorge to a beautiful forest and magical chapel site amongst the highest mountains. Some very steep and scary sections across steep slopes / rockfalls. Don't underestimate the difficulty and length of this walk though- start early in the cool of the morning. Treat yourself to staying at nearby hotel

Be ready with plenty of water and a camera to explore this amazing gorge. The path starts next to the Eleonas resort and brings you through Rouvas gorge to the amazing church of Agios Joannis. There is no water in the river bed in July/August but there is a water fountain next to the church. The path is well marked all the way through.
