Water channels with spring water
On the last kilometer a water channel accompanied the street. Here you can draw with an empty bottle of fresh spring water. Across from the children’s home is also a small chapel.
If you go on at the end of the road, you come to a narrow goat path. This then just follow until you come to the broad way. At the point where the road forks, is a large stone that points the way to Ipsarion. Here not turn to Ipsarion, but follow the path straight ahead.
Huge Plane trees
After a short time you pass gigantic plane trees. The trees are simply quaint. For this purpose, the way has been worth it. This gnarled trees have an almost magical appearance. Some are partially hollow, and bent on the weather. There can be all sorts of figures interpret into it. You can not stop to shoot photos.
The large fig tree
The wide path then passes the source stream away to the left. There is a goat grid at this point. Before the goats grid is a huge fig tree. The end of August you can here enjoy the delicious figs, which could not reached by the goats.
At this point, the tour in the mountains ends, and we make our way back.
The children’s home can also be reached with a scooter or a car, as the road is paved up there. The walk up to the clearing then takes about 30 minutes (if you go cozy and looks). The slope is moderate, and the way quite well.
