PRESS RELEASE\r\n\r\nFrom the Forest Directorate of Chania:\r\nWe would like to remind to visitors who are planning to cross Samaria Gorge that they should  be particularly careful, especially at points where there are warning signs for stone falls. They should always follow the instructions provided by the park rangers and carry the necessary equipment for their personal safety (appropriate clothing and footwear, sun protection means, any medication that will probably be needed in the gorge, and whatever they find suitable for their own safety).\r\n\r\nTourist offices visiting the National Park should inform their customers about the actual conditions inside the gorge as well as for the conditions of fitness required for the crossing of the central path.\r\n\r\nFinally, it should be noted that the visit to the National Park is the sole responsibility of the visitor.
