Ha Gorge is a special characteristic of Ierapetra’s relief. It is considered as one of the wildest canyons in Greece and it probably took its name from the verb “hasko” which means gap. We could say that it is a virgin habitat full of flora and fauna, never touched by human as its configuration does not allow anyone to know it well, pass or take advantage of it.
Mesonas gorge is located in the northern slopes of mounts Thryptis near Ierapetra’s Kavousi, in village Avgos and connects Thrypti’s plateau with Kavousi. It’s a small canyon, four kilometers length with technical descents that requires equipment in order to climb down from its litter. However it’s passable along both of its sides.
