Perivolakia Gorge

Gorges

Lassithi

The Perivolakia Gorge is located in the area of Makry Gialos. An extremely beautiful gorge, easily accessible almost all along its length. It is easily approached although there are points that are slightly steep and require caution. There are route options available to choose from those that run along (red arrows) and those that lead directly to the stream bed, but marking is difficult at times. The entry point is before the monastery (starting point from the Makry Gialos), indicated by markings. As an alternative, the hike also starts from the village bearing the same name, and after a route of up to 2 hours, it leads to the Libyan Sea. There is no market, but there are facilities for hygiene (toilets and sink/water point) near the chapel/church.

The geo-route mapped by UNESCO takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Starting from the Perivolakia village, it goes through the village of Pezoulas, reaches the amazing gorge and ends at the wonderful private beach of Moni Kapsas with a fantastic view of the sea.

It is recommended for people experienced in hiking and climbing as equipment (drinking water, hat, climbing/athletic shoes) is necessary and it is not a child-friendly route.
