This relatively small plain not far away from Spili is renounced for its richness of orchids, so I had much set my mind on
finding it. This turned out to be not so easy, and initially I mistook another location, also rich in orchids, for
Gious Kámbos. Once we realized this, the next day, 22 April, we reoriented ourselves on the map and then found it without
too much difficulties. However, that day was particulalrly rainy and after a few hours of rain, we had to seek shelter in Spili.
The next day the weather was clearing up, and we went back to stay most of the day in this orchid walhalla. Though the area
isn't large, it's so rich in orchids that's hard not to trample them! Besides the orchids, the area has more to offer in terms
of plants, such as the Cretan endemics Fritillaria messanensis and Tulipa doerfleri.
