The valley starts above the village of Agia Irini (at the water dividing line between north and south Crete), narrows to a gorge a little south of the village and ends in Sougia.

The walk to Sougia takes a total of 4 hours and can be done throughout the year, provided that it hasn't rained in the preceding days.

Imbros Gorge

Imbors gorge - small but full of wildness

When people from Sfakia say "the gorge" they are of course referring to the Samaria gorge which is Crete's pride, as no such other exists in Europe.

They are right, but Imbros gorge is also well worth seeing. It may be small but it is most picturesque and full of wildness.
