Nida Plateau – Kamares Cave

For this walk we drive towards the NIDA PLATEAU at 1450 meters. The path starts at the POROS TIS MILIAS which is also the northern side of the VORIZIA GORGE. This path, leading up to KAMARES CAVE is well maintained and leads us along stone shelters used by local shepherds and high region forests while the view becomes more impressive step by step. Once we reach the cave we can see the entire MESSARA PLAIN, the SOUTH COAST OF HERAKLION PREFECTURE and the VORIZIA GORGE from an altitude of 1780 meters! After descending back to the NIDA PLATEAU, we will visit the famous IDAION ANDRON CAVE, where according to the Greek Mythology, the OLYMPIAN GOD ZEUS grew up.
