Samaria Gorge, national park, in Crete island

with No Comments

The Samaria Gorge is in southwest Crete in the prefecture of Chania.
It was created by a small river running between the White Mountains (Lefká Óri) and Mt. Volakias.
The walk through Samaria National Park is 13 km long, but you have to walk another three km to Agia Roumeli from the park exit, making the hike 16 km.
The most famous part of the gorge is the stretch known as the Iron Gates, where the sides of the gorge close in to a width of only four meters and soar up to a height of 1,100m (3,610feet)
