COMMUNITY COMMENTS AND PHOTOS

Samaria Gorge is one of many beautiful gorges in Crete and one of the places you should visit on your Crete holidays. The gorge has a length of 16 km, starting at an altitude of 1,250 m., in Xyloskalo and ending on the shores of the Libyan Sea in Agia Roumeli. It is quite long (4 to 6 hours hiking), so you should be prepared for a quite rough route. The gorge was declared as a national park in 1962 mainly because it is a shelter for the rare Kri-Kri (Cretan Ibex). Samaria Gorge has also a variety of several rare endemic species as well as many species of flowers and birds. Read More: https://creti.co/blog/samaria-gorge-agia-roumeli/
