Kritsa Gorge in Crete
Lasithi Gorges - Kritsa Gorge in Crete is a stunning natural wonder that starts near the charming village of Kritsa, just 9.5 kilometers southwest of Agios Nikolaos, and ends at the village of Tapes. This 4-kilometer-long gorge boasts some sections that are only 1.5 meters wide, making hiking an exciting adventure as you gradually climb over large rocks. However, it's best to avoid visiting the gorge after rainfall as it can create ponds that block the passages. The entrance of the canyon near Kritsa is awe-inspiring, as the mountain appears to be split in two, forming the narrow passage of Havgas. While the main path commences next to the stone bridge of Kritsa, there is a second trail that starts in the village. Additionally, the gorge features an abundance of natural beauty, with plenty of shady spots to rest and take in the stunning surroundings. Don't miss out on experiencing the natural splendor of Kritsa Gorge in Crete.
