You depart from the Silana pass, situated 1,050 m above the sea-level and descent further along an accessible road until you finally reach the gorge’s entrance.
Walking inside the canyon can be a little bit tiring as there is no real path. In the hottest months, it is recommended to start the excursion by leaving in the early morning.

The path then turns into a rather uneven dug up path, full of surprises for mountain bike enthusiasts.
You finally reach the gorge’s mouth, it can only be visited by walking having left the bikes at its entrance.
During a one-hour trekking trip, you walk through the whole gorge and then you reach the hotel using another route through the Oddoene valley.
