Cambia Gorge


Arriving in Kambia we descend to the village square and a few meters before it, we follow the downhill alley on the right, which passes between the houses. After the last house, the path begins.

Already at the beginning of the path we see the verdant gorge, which crosses the route, stretches out in front of us.
Following the path we descend, listening to the sound of the water, which is thrown by the riverside in the torrent. Our hearing is the only witness to the existence of waterfalls, since the dense vegetation prevents any visual contact.

The path descends to the river and soon we find ourselves walking parallel to the riverbed. At this point, through the dense vegetation, we can see a beautiful arched bridge for access to the small waterfall that is formed.
The route along the river lasts a long time, between dense vegetation of pines, plane trees, wild roses. Arriving at the second bridge, we cross opposite and leave the riverbed to our right.

From there the path ascends, moves away from the river and passes through the cultivated areas. However, the height we gain allows us to have a panoramic view of the plane trees and other species of aquatic vegetation, which follow the flow of water, as well as to enjoy the image created by the opposite meteoric rocks with the pines perched on them.
Oria Castle stands above us, at the top of a large vertical rock. In his arms is the church of Agia Paraskevi and further the birdhouse.

As we continue on our way, the path begins to descend again and soon the river meets again. At this point where the impressive cypress trees dominate, there is a small dam, from the edge of which begins the stone irrigation ditch that leads the water to the orchards.
Through the bridge, located a little below, we pass opposite , again having the riverbed to our left. We walk along the river with the dry stones of the orchards on our right. Next to our feet, the irrigation ditch is also directed towards the sea, distributing water to all the citrus fruits overloaded.

The first farmhouses have begun to appear, as has the road that has been opened by the beach and leads to them.
At the end of the route we reach the sea and the wetland formed by the estuary of the river.
