We will start from chania at 7am by car to the mountainous village Zourva moving trought Agyia,Alikianos,FournesMeskla villages. Then we will start to hike to Tromarisa Spring in a cypress tree forest and fantastic view beggining. We are going to hike for 550m altitute higher anabout 5km distanse. For the first km the path is between trees too close to each other and the smell from the cypress wood is haracteristic.Father on the path becomes less stipy and diferent trees like Ambelitsia and Itamos as well plants like tyme, marzoran ,origan, sage, agarathus will apear infront of us. We will move paralied Tromarisa's gorge and we will cross the river once close to Tromarissa. Finally when we will be at Tromarissa spring we will see the gigandium trees there,the spring that never stop to have fresh water and enjoy there having a small snack if you wish so and drinking from the spring fresh cold water. This place is "magic" for the most people that have been there. We returne the same way back as soon as you enjoy enough. And If you wish we can stay for lunch at Zourva or Meskla to a traditional taverna. Finally we will returne back to chania at 3pm.All the way is on an old path.

The path is been mostly in a forest and the view changes all the time.
