The Sarakina gorge is located at the southeast Crete, 17 km from Ierapetra, near the small village of Mithi. It is not long but according to the visitors it is the easiest and nicest.
According to the myth, the giant Sarantapichos, stopped once to drink water from the river Myrtos, and his long beard, slashed the mountain in two, and the gorge was formed.

Its length is about 1.5 km and the width varies between 3 and 10 meters, only at a few points it widens more. The height of the walls is approximately 150 m. The river of Kriopotamos flows through the gorge all year round, and forms beautiful waterfalls and ponds, ideal for swimming, in summer. At some points where the terrain is challenging, there are steps carved in the rocks and some tree trunks are as ladders.
