Kounaviano gorge

The gorge of Kounavi (Kounaviano) is 5 kilometres long in total. The elevation difference between the entrance and the outlet is 180 metres.

It has two entrance points: one at the settlement of Mirtia and another at the settlement of Kounavi. These two routes merge together along the way, and lead into the gorge of Astrakί

The walk through the gorge of Kounavi is quite difficult, because of its thick vegetation and the morphology of the watercourse.
