"Found poem", all the text lifted from a tourist pamphlet picked up in Crete, only very slightly edited.
There are daily buses starting from Chania to the head of the gorge, which is called Xyloskalo. Buses say on the front "Omalos" and depart from the central bus station. By taking any of the morning buses you get to Xyloskalo after one and a half hours. At Xyloskalo there is a tourist pavilion where you can get meals, drinks, and which has only seven beds for staying overnight. For those wishing to spend the night on the Omalos plateau there is another possibility, that of staying at Omalos village itself, five kilometres before Xyloskalo, where are two cafés providing several beds. From there you get any of the morning buses starting from Chania to the head of the gorge. The length of the gorge is sixteen kilometres, and you need five to six hours to walk through it. There is plenty of drinking water all along the gorge. Tennis shoes or walking boots are recommended. Camping, overnight staying, smoking, hunting, cutting and uprooting plants are forbidden. At the mouth of the gorge is Aghia Rouméli village, which provides restaurants and accommodation. From there you take boats either to Sfakía (duration: one hour) or to Soughia and Paleochora. Remember that the last boat to Sfakía is at 17 hours, which connects with the last bus to Chania at 18 hours. Duration of the bus trip: two hours.
I just love the Greek names, and the slightly unconventional English of the text.
