Near the abandoned village is the gorge, which stretches to the coast of the Libyan Sea, and many desperate travelers can walk through it.
The Gorge of Aradena lies near the town of Chora Sfakion, near the eponymous village, whose inhabitants fled in all directions after the declaration of war here between two main families.
Above the canyon stretched Vardinoyannis bridge that connects the village with the rest of Crete. The bridge is narrow and it can only drive one car. From the bridge often jump lovers of extreme sports.
Start the descent into the valley is at the bridge and the gorge trail stretches for 7 kilometers along the dried up river bed among the rocks covered with thickets of green timid and wild goats.
