Twice in two weeks! How lucky am I? Again, I get to walk one of the most amazing walks in the world!
The Samaria Gorge is the largest in Europe and begins on the Omalos Plateau, meeting the Lybian Sea at Agia Roumeli. The walk is 18km from top to bottom, through walls between 200m and 1000m high, and between 3m and 300m wide.
At its narrowest, it has been named Sideroportes
(Iron Gates) and, throughout its length, 20 fresh water springs provide water to those daring the walk.
Once at the bottom, there are only two options:
- Walk back up
- Get the boat out
There is possibly a third - stay!
