On your way to Plakias (back and forth from Rethymnon, in our case) we were awed by the narrow strait and the tall mountains surrounding it. In September there was no water stream but the overall way even without walking through the gorge is most impressive. We were surprised by the landscape especially since on all three Crete maps that we used the gorge wasn't mentioned (?). So we just stopped the car twice and watched the view from the look-outs. It adds a special dimension to the western road linking the northern and soutern coasts.
