Mintris Gorge starts near the village of Filippoi in Mesara, and ends at the port of Tsoutsouras, essentially acting as a border for the administrative division of Pera Tsoutsouras and Tsoutsouras, since it covers a 6 km distance. It is a very open gorge, without vertical walls, dry in the summer and very easy to hike. Along the river lie the ruins of the ancient city.

Hiking can start in the middle of the gorge, from the trail leading to Tsoutsouras. The trail passes through and next to the Mintris riverbed, where there are mostly carob trees. Halfway along the trail, at Perdikonero, there is a spring with drinkable water.
