Trail Detailed Description

From Ammoudari (1), following the asphalt road southwards, we pass through the settlement of Petres (2) and after approximately 4 km we come to a left turn-off (3) which leads to Asfendou and Kallikratis.

We continue in a southerly direction for another 1,5 km and then pass through the village of Imbros (4). In approximately 200 m from the last house, we see amarkshowing the direction to the entrance hut (5) as well as the beginning of the path that leads us to the gorge of Imbros

We cross a dry water course and initially follow its eastern bank. We then follow the stream bed and after about 20 minutes we are in the main section of the gorge.

The narrow passages, the steep, verdant gorge walls and the rich flora make this gorge one of the most beautiful and frequently visited of Crete.

This gorge has no branches, so walking in it is safe and effortless.

Once we have left the steep-walled section of the gorge, the dry landscape of Sfakia opens up ahead of us.

The route from the entrance hut until the outlet (6) of the gorge is about 3,5 km long, in total. 

We continue in the stream bed for another 950 m, until we reach the asphalt road (7), on the eastern exit of the village of Komitades.
