The Samaria Gorge
 
The Samaria Gorge or Faraga, as called by the local people lies 43 Km South of Chania. The entrance to the gorge is in Xiloskalo at an altitude of 1.1227 metres above sea level.

The descent is considered to be strenuous and rather difficult and lasts from 6 to 8 hours, depending on one’s experience on rough terrain. The Gorge was recently voted as one of the most beautiful natural reserves by the European council.
