Gorge Kourtaliotiko is one of the most beautiful gorges of Crete, hiding many surprises. We will go down to its bottom with a gravel road and steps. For a short while we will wade the Megalopotamos River to reach the picturesque alley, where the water seeps over the green-covered rocks. Here we will prepare a small Cretan snack for you. You can stay here and enjoy the beauty of this place. But if you like challenges and you’re not afraid of icy water, you can enter between the vertical walls of the ravine to reach the main cascade after a few dozen meters – a waterfall about 40 meters high. It is a magical place, vibrant with the energy of nature. Here you will feel the strength and beauty of the water element. Even in the peak season few people reach this place. Near the waterfall you will find a charming corner with the church of St. Nicholas and a stone bridge where you can admire the waterfall from above.
We leave the gorge by the same route, admiring the stories about the legends and nature of this unique place.
Do you have to be able to swim?
- yes, to reach the great cascade.
