Last weekend my younger son went to the Vikos Gorge and Meteora. Those places are near my hometown ,so he visited his grandparents and he went for another time to see this beautiful natural !
Some information from this site :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikos_Gorge
The Vikos Gorge (Greek:Φαράγγι του Βικου ) is a gorge in Pindus Mountains of northern Greece. It lies on the southern slopes of Mount Tymfi , with a length of about 20km ,depth ranging from 450m to 1600 m to some metres at its narrowest.Vikos is listed as the deepest gorge in the world by the Guinness Book of Records among others. This follows a somewhat arbitrary definicion of a gorge that excludes deeper features such as Colca Canyon of their greater width : depth ratio .
