Les gorges de la Crète occidentale - une galerie de photos - Page 1

Les gorges de Samaria sont une des attractions principale de la Crète et attirent plus de 200.000 visiteurs par an. Inutile de dire que cela peut sérieusement affliger la tranquilité de l'endroit. Mais il y a plus de 50 autres gorges dans les Montagnes Blanches et si vous rechercher la tranquilité, vous la trouverez dans toutes les autres.

Certaines gorges sont faciles et peu longues, d'autres sont dangereuses et difficiles à trouver. Informez-vous avant d'y aller. Une chose à éviter partout est d'aller dans une gorge quand il pleut. Pas tellement à cause du danger d'inondations mais parceque la pluit entraine beaucoup de chutes de pierres

Les pages suivantes montrent des photos des 4 gorges les plus populaires et accessibles dans le Sud-Ouest de la Crète.

La première page montre des photos de la gorge de Samaria ainsi que quelques photos d'Imbros.

  • Around km 6 you get good views of a large side valley to the East. It ends up in cliffs that rise to a height of 1900m. Incidentally, this photo was taken from the small pointed bump (not that small when you are on it) at around 1900m that you can see in the middle of the ridge.
