Tiff on the hike from Symplegades over to Ourania.


Ourania is a very large, relatively undeveloped, and less frequented 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
