One of the most beautiful gorges in Crete. Unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy these beauties. Required good condition and preparation of climbing.

Really beautiful, the walk from the parking to the gorge is only about 10 minutes. You can't actually get inside the gorge. Great views toward the sea too.
