Gorges & Ravines
A small but very beautiful and wild gorge with significant altitude
differences from the entrance to the exit, due to which the walk in the gorge
is sideling enough and takes place among small or bigger rocks and under very
impressive precipitous escarpments.
You reach the beginning of the gorge via the asphalt road leading
from the crossroads of Petra Seli to the plateau of Omalos
route) and about 1 km from the entrance to the detour of Omalos. On the nearby
dirt road, there is a 1-km long pathway leading to Platanos
after 15 minutes, a densely wooded area with plane trees and ferns and full of
water sources. You thus enter the main portion of the gorge and exit the gorge
after walking for two hours on the rural road leading from the village of Prasse
in Kydonia (31 km distant from
Chania, at an altitude of 480m) to the village of Skidia rightwards. You need
another 40 minutes' walk before reaching Prasse if you do not have any vehicle
at your disposal.
