Walk along Samaria Gorge a bit

Walk along  Samaria Gorge a bit

[Aug.2009] We were going to join a tour to go to the west end of the island of Crete, but because the company made a mistake, we had to join a tour to Samaria Gorge.

First we moved to the south side of the island and took a ferry.

The landscape of the south coast was wilder.

We got of at the entrance of Samaria Gorge, whose the narrowest point is only 3 metres and the cliff on the both sides are 700 metres high.

If you walk all the way it is 16 kilometres, and a lot of serious walkers were walking there.

I spent about one hour to enjoy the atmosphere and went back to the beach.

The water there was even cleaner.
