The gorge of Samaria seen from above

 

This is a view of the gorge of Samaria that few people will ever see. It is taken betwen the two summits of Volakias, at around 2100m on the ridge that towers above the western side of the Samaria gorge.

The gorge that you see in the left part of the image is the gorge of Kalokampos, a large gorge leading into Samaria from the East (and not open to the public). It reaches the main stream of the gorge of Samaria just above the village of Samaria (you don't see the village but you see the hill above the village. From there and to the right (South) you can observe the very tall vertical cliffs of the gorge. Just beyond you will see another knife edge ridge. This runs at around 1800 meters and separates the gorges of Samaria and Eligas. Beyond that, you have the central White Mountains with Pachnes being the highest massif at the centre of the picture and Zaranokefala (2100m) the mountain furthest South before descending towards Agios Ioannis, the plateau of Anopolis and further down the coast near Agios Pavlos.
