Lefka Ori & Samaria Gorge
Deep in central Hania province, the Omalos Plateau breaches the towering the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) and marks the northern entry to the Samaria (sa-ma-ria) Gorge. Many will approach the region from Hania and start the gorge hike in little Omalos. But you can also reach Omalos easily from Paleohora and Sougia on the southern coast. The Samaria Gorge trail descends to Agia Roumeli, also on the southern coast.
