Caving in Crete



Cave Gaidourotripa at Kritsa
(5 votes)

Cave Gaidourotripa is located west of Kritsa, on the road that leads to the plateau Katharo and very close to the point where Ioannis Podias formed the Department of Eastern Crete of the Democratic Army of Crete in 1947.

The cave is relatively large and bears very rich decoration, consisting mainly of stalagmites and stalactites, and rich cave fauna. Its name literally means Donkey Cave, because the locals used to bring the elderly donkeys in the cave. The access is fairly normal to the point where a 10m deep sinkhole is formed, which requires technical equipment and experience in caving.
