It will take you about 3 hours to enjoy a 4.8 km clearly marked and safely walkable route along the gorge, surrounded by plane trees (Platanus) and the dulcet scent of sage, thyme and numerous other local herbs and flowers.
The path starts at Exo Mouliana village, continues over the very old stone bridge of Lachanas, which used to be part of the 19th century route to Agios Nikolaos, followed by alternating sceneries of the mountains and the gorge. You can observe old mills and stone houses along the path and also many local species of butterflies and vegetation.
The route culminates with the 16m high Rihtis waterfall where you can take a break to enjoy the magical scenery, taste fresh berries directly from the bush and take a refreshing swim in the pond under the waterfall.
A short walk along the gorge after the waterfall will take you to Richtis beach where you can enjoy a swim in the sea, some relaxing time under the Tamarisk (salt cedar) trees and refresh yourself with some water from the fountain which receives clean water from a nearby source in the mountains. And if you brought a snack with you can use the stone tables and seats under the Tamarisk trees to enjoy a meal and gain some strength for your way back!
For your return journey from Rihtis beach you can, of course, walk along the gorge back to Exo Mouliana village. But it is recommended that you enjoy the mountain and sea views and also the gorge from above by walking the concrete road that starts at Richtis beach and will also take you back to Exo Mouliana village. If you prefer this road is also easily accessible by car and you can have a friend or a local travel agency waiting for you to take you back by car.
