This is a difficult route, but it is so beautiful and challenging. If you live in the area around Sitia, then this choice is a good idea. Do not be afraid of narrow paths, stony roads and beautiful views :-)

The walking timings are quite misleading and would continually change. I appreciate it's been a dry winter in Crete, so sadly by the time we finally reached the "waterfall" it was barely a trickle. A pretty little place, but not much of a refreshing dip...More

A gorgeous place! The waterfall is not that big but great to take a swim or just cool your feet after an exiting journey along the gorge.
