Kydoni Gorge
(12 votes)

The Gorge Kydoni is a small lush green paradise near the village Karanou, which has been adorned with a beautiful trail and information signage. The trail starts from the fountain of the village and is very easy to walk and appropriate for children.

Along the route of the gorge we meet caves, three small waterfalls and the church of St Demetrius bearing frescoes. The length of the canyon is 2000 meters and the riverbed has water till early summer. About 100 meters before joining the river there is a trail leading to the village Skordalou. The trail meets the river Mavropiliotis and heads west to the second gorge of the area, Boriano.
