Description Suggest change

Ourania is a very large cave near the popular area, Symplegades.

The rock quality in the cave ranges from dubious conglomerate looking rock on the right side to wonderful tufas and stalactites on the left side of the cave. Giant fig trees grow throughout the cave.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike as for Symplegades passing the right hand turn up the hill and continuing on the the obvious giant cave. You can also traverse over from Symplegades, if climbing there first. Unfortunately the trails are not well worn in currently so you may find yourself making your own way.
