Hiking Routes

“Kryoneria-Tsekoura”: From the village Kryoneria we continue to Perdikovrysi. After about 2 km, and after passing a stone fountain, we find at the left of the road the path. With relatively small slope and passing the stone threshing floor, we reach a carol with a spring. From here the trail becomes steep uphill on the ridge on the right. Reaching the top of the ridge we follow it and we reach a col in front of us. Without path, but well marked and bare rocky terrain, following the ridge to our right, we reach Tsekoura. The trail moves in bulk through a fir forest. Source: http://el.wikiloc.com (Satlani Sula)

“Ano Chora- Tsakalaki”: From the square and heading up the streets of Ano Chora, we come to a dirt road at the top of the village. We cross the dirt road and enter for an etch of the road. We follow the path to the right of the road. We pass two cisterns (an earthen, where is running drinking water and a cement one) and a stone chapel. Passing a glade with a chestnut growing and following steadily a SW course, we go back to the dirt road. At 100 meters we cross dirt roads and we take the left. We follow it for 400 meters and enter the woods, the left of the road in half -closed path through the chestnut forest. After 400 meters we meet a crossroad again. We take the left dirt road and continue for 200 meters. Again on the left side of the dirt road we enter into a non-visible path for 200 meters. We come to a dirt road, where we have visual contact with Tsakalaki. We follow the dirt road and after 950 m. we find again a crossroad. We take the right uphill dirt road and follow it until the end, where we find sheepfolds. We are entering the stream to the right and jump to the nape. Without path, with enough slope and relative difficult, rocky ground, we get on a ridge 80 meters below the first peak of the mountain (1697m). Bypassing the first peak, we get on a ridge and following it, we arrive at Tsakalaki. We have beautiful view of the whole mountains of Nafpaktia, Vardousia, the mountains of Evritania and Trichonidas Source: http://el.wikiloc.com (Satlani Sula)
