This route is one of the most spectacular trails on the slopes of mount Taygetos.

Our tour starts  from the Monastery of Golas (1632AD), (altitude 844m). A unique monastery thanks to its frescoes depicting  ancient greek philosophers. The view from here to the ridge of mount Taygetos is amazing. A well marked trail through the forest of firs and chestnuts gets us to the lush canyon “Larnakia”. We pass over stone bridges and small waterfalls which form natural pools.

In summer, this place is a hidden paradise, where we can cool off in crystal waters, as many colorful dragonflies welcome us to their “home”.

Our destination (altitude 648m) is a picturesque settlement Koumousta (17th century), abandoned but well preserved: traditional buildings with stone roads, and a charming square with marble fountains.

We can enjoy our traditional snack and fresh spring water before we take the route back to the starting point.
