The Gorge of Ha (Cha) in Ierapetra, Lassithi Crete: The Gorge of Ha is located in the region of Ierapetra, next to Vassiliki village. Considered one of the wildest gorges in Crete, it is practically inaccessible and only experienced climbers and canyoners can cross it. The length of the gorge is 1 km and the entrance is very narrow, opening only on the top. In many spots, the width of the gorge is only 30cm and in others is 3m the most.
The interior of the gorge is amazing with small waterfalls and lakes, however crossing it without the necessary experience and equipment could be fatal. The region inside and around the Gorge of Ha is a wildlife habitat with many rare species of flora and fauna. The name of this gorge comes from the Greek word hasko, which means to open.
