The imposing bare slopes at the southern entrance make this gorge one of the most interesting geological formations of Psiloritis. Passing through its course is fairly easy. It is a marvellous place, thick in vegetation, where deciduous oaks dominate the scenery.
The famous Nida plateau is located north of the gorge. On its western slope, below Mavri Korifί (= black peak), Kamares cave is to be found; there, the remarkable Minoan Kamares ware pottery was unearthed.
The route from Vorίzia to the point where the gorge divides is 2,5 kilometres long, while the elevation difference between the entrance to the gorge and this spot is 520 metres.
