  • This hike is still not overly assessed, we were curious and they took us as a destination for a not so sunny day. You can park at the starting point of the hike, however, space is limited, because the village is not particularly large. A map marks the starting point of the hike. Here it is noted that there are passages, which can be difficult for non experienced hikers. And Yes, there is a passage where you walk around so to speak on the mountain / climbing needs, but to do anything, because there are many timber limits where you can hold. Requires no ropes or resulting in whatever an experienced climber with it. The endpoint consists of the photographed Church. You can take a different way back. For this purpose, it is again a piece of the Church the way back and then make eyes and click the red dots. Times harder times easier to see. But definitely cool as you climbed up the mountain can see again from the other side. So have fun

  • The track should be easy in the first part and in part II. The problem is the lack of marking the trail of olive groves. We've been searching for over an hour and a half the route. We got lost and gave up. Try another time. Yes we saw birds of prey circling the village pltania (Platania). Partial compensation for the disappointment.

  • A fairly challenging walk, but definitely worthwhile for the view!!
  • A great way the Canyon high, really a dream to prospects! A climax almost eye to eye the bearded vulture. Also otherwise incredibly varied. Although no easy terrain, one should be non-slip. Expect 2 hrs for a track, it goes back a little faster.
