Farangouli Gorge at Voriza
(1 Vote)

The Gorge Farangouli at Voriza is located in Psiloritis massif, in the area of the village Vorizia. It is one of the three parallel canyons of the area, with the most famous of all being the great Gorge of Vorizia. The shortest and most unknown is Farangouli, which starts in the village houses and climbs up steeply.

Its ascent is through the steep, but passable bed. It has beautiful rocks of limestone and it is initially dry. While ascending there are more cypress trees, while the scenery starts reminding of a gorge in Sfakia province. After about 40 minutes the gorge finishes and the landscape changes dramatically, with dense vegetation forming the pine wood of Pefkias.
