Begin in Kosmadai mountain village and after a jeep ride leading to a hidden monastery in the forest. After the monastery starting the Kakoperato. The name of the path “Kakoperato” means difficult passing referring to the narrow ledge path on the side of the mountain looking down at the gorge. This path leads inside a cave where with  chapel of the Virgin Mary was built. The view from the pathway is beautiful with the gorge beneath you and every time with the filling of safety because of the protection rails on the edge.

On the end of this trip again after a jeep ride back to the village it is the big surprise corner! On this place it is the “balcony view” on the highest point of the Canyon, 400m cliffs from both of sides and on the sea side the magnificent Seitani beach from above.
