Waterfall in the Canyon of Rihti

Throughout the year, water flows aplenty through the gorgeous Rihti gorge, in northeastern Crete, next to the village of Mouliana. When walking through the dense forest in the middle of summer, a refreshing dip in the little pond filled by the ever-flowing waterfall, is just what a hiker needs in the heat built up by a gentle hour's walk. A little further down, as the river flows, the gorge opens up to a rugged pebble coast, where campers await for a drink and snack, as well as a quick ride up to the village, should you not want to take the half-hour-long path back up to the village.
