Platania Gorge

Platania Gorge is located in the western foothills of Psiloritis and you can find the entrance in the homonymous village. This is a small but impressive gorge with rich vegetation with endemic and other plants, predators that find shelter here, and enormous, vertical rocks and caves. In one of these caves, in the Cave of Pan where, according to legend, was the birthplace of the ancient God, there are some inscriptions on the rock, maybe of the Minoan era. The biggest part of the gorge requires knowledge of canoeing in order to cross it, however, the first part of the route includes a smooth path that even children can walk it.
