Great view of the gorge Jun 22, 2011
Make sure you visit Monodendri in Zagorochoria just north from Ioannina. When yo get there walk around the cobbled paths between the quaint village houses. When you drive towards the village, just before the village the road forks and you can choose the upper or lower road to get to the village. I would chose the lower which brings you to a car park. Then you walk to a little square where you can order a traditional cheese pie before you set off towards the gorge which by the way is in the Guinness book as the deepest gorge in the world (900m).Right on the edge of the cliff you will see the monastery of S. Friday which is open and you can walk through the front door to get to the balcony which overlooks the gorge. If you explore the place you will see the toilet, which, when you do your business has a hole through which you can watch your "business" fly into the gorge.Above the monastery (if you follow the steps up) you can follow the path along the rocky cliff (be careful of slippery rocks) which leads to the other side. The view and echo are spectacular and not something you would want to miss.
