Let's discover the wild part of Cretan Nature!
The gorge is located in the southeastern part of Crete. The length of the gorge is 1. 5 km. The gorge is quite narrow. Its width varies on average from three to ten meters and only a few places are wider. The height of the rocks framing the gorge is 150 m, which looks impressive. In the gorge flows a small mountain river with the purest water. During the year, the water level in the river changes and reaches a maximum in winter, which makes traveling along the gorge during this period impossible.
This picturesque gorge is one of the most beautiful in Crete. This is a wonderful unique monument of wildlife, which annually attracts thousands of tourists, both local and foreign.
In addition to the gorge, swimming on deserted beaches, visiting an artificial mountain lake, a village and the city along the route.

According to an ancient legend, the giant Sarantapihos - son of Zeus, stopped at the river flowing here to drink water. His long beard cut the mountain in two and thus formed a gorge. Therefore, the locals often call this place the Sarantapihos gorge. Traveling through the gorge will not require climbing equipment.
Crossing this gorge refers to the average level of difficulty. With the exception of some places, it is fairly even and easy-passable. In general, traveling through the gorge will not require climbing equipment. The lush vegetation of a wide variety of colors and the singing of wild birds will create for the traveler a feeling of harmony and complete unity with nature.
