Kavousi Prefecture of Lasithi

Between high mountains, sources of water and dense vegetation, Kavousi, appears to be drowned literally into the indescribable natural beauty.

The village constitutes a pleasant stop-point for those who are directed to Sitia or return from.
It is lies precisely on the foots of Thripti mountain (1476m), on the exit of Avgo gorge, to the south-east area of Merabello gulf.
A walk to the village will certainly travel you in past times, where both tradition and beauty are waiting by the corner to initiate each visitor into the mystery of time.
