Trail Achendrias - Maridaki



Attention! The heavy rains of the last years have damaged many gorges and many paths have been destroyed so they are no longer accessible. You could inform us for such cases, so we update the listings in our website.
Ligiofarago Gorge
(5 votes)

Ligiofarago is one of the few canyons of East Asterousia range that one can walk down to the sea without needing technical equipment. Recently the path has been signed, connecting Achendrias to Maridaki, running through the gorge.

The route passes through spectacular geological formations and requires good physical condition due to the rocky bottom and the several points that climbing is needed. Near Maridaki the gorge merges with Achendrias Gorge and we come nearby the impressive waterfall of Lichnistis (It has water after rainfalls) and we reach the spring of Maridaki with the towering plane trees and the small creek leading to the beach.
