Imbros Gorge is a beautiful place to visit while on holiday in Crete. I went on an 8km hike and loved walking through this natural site of wild beauty surrounded by vegetation consisting of oak trees, fig trees, almond trees, and cypress trees...
The site of Imbros is splendid and fascinating with its rcoky walls standing almost 300 metres high. But be careful, there are some very tight spots: the narrowest point of the gorge is just 2 metres wide! If you want to follow this trail, the best thing to do is to walk alongside the waterbed. A walk among the boulders and caves!
To get to the gorge, I'd advise starting at the village of Imbros: it's a mountain hamlet with well-stocked grocery stores and taverns to eat at, but there's no accommodation for hikers. If you plan to stay the night, set off from the village of Komitades, located further south.
