Trachoulas Gorge

The Trachoulas Gorge (or Trafoulas Gorge) is located on the south side of the Asetrousia Mountain Range. The gorges end at the beautiful located beach of Psili Ammos at the Libyan Sea. Most hikers walk in a small part of it, from the point where they park their car to the beach, while the gorge starts in higher altitude. The gorge is very impressive with very narrow walls and imposing rocks. Locals say that the narrow part is called Pidimatou Gorge (Jumping gorge) as one goat can jump from one side to the other.
