Richtis Gorge reviews
We went there on our own by car, not with a tour operator/excursion. No fee- free access. Car parking, if with small kids- drive as close as you can (down to the old bridge). Some people walk... more »
We started our trip from main road, where you have ~20 walk on pavement to the bridge(where you actually can park the car). So on main road we met some medics and asked if we can go by car to the... more »
Very beautiful place. I recommend it for anybody that is looking for a bit of adventure. The way down from where you park the car until the waterfall is quite difficult so be sure to be prepared for it and it is not for everyone. Be sure to bring some good shoes.
Took the shortcut hike from the parking lot. The drive down is not that bad. I've seen worse in Greece. It is only a 1.5 lane in most parts. It is a bit bumpy but the road is in good shape.. The drive down took 15 min going 15-20kph. Before we turned off the main road to drive down, we saw 4 young ladies just starting to walk from the top. We got to the parking lot at 10am and made it to the waterfall at 10:50am. That's with stopping to take in nature and take pictures. The path is marked with markings on boulders every 30-50 meters. And with tiny river falls along the way. We were all by ourselves until 1130am, that's when people started coming in. At 11:45 those 4 ladies made it. It took them 2 hours from the top. By 12pm, there were about 20 people there. There is a bench there to relax and have lunch On the way back to the parking lot it took us just 35 min. It's another 200 meters to the beach. If you want to visit here, get here before 11.
