The walk up from the recycling paper factory has many interesting endemic Cretan plants. The entrance to the Gorge is alive with many interesting birds: martins, clough, thrush and if you are lucky a golden eagle!

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.
