Hiking on old paths through the diverse Greek landscape and traditional villages forgotten by time. The colors, and shapes of the flowers, trees, rocks, summits, old houses and bridges, the game of the sun with the clouds or the waves, the smell of the herbs after the rain. All of these are the joy of senses and are talking about a world that many of us have forgotten because of modern life.
Slowly we will have again a better understanding for plants and animals and how the forces of nature form the landscape. We will be reminded that, humans are part of the ecosystem and they were not strangers or enemies. This is a relationship that we have to regain.
Mount Parnonas is a very long mountain that stars from Arcadia and ends at Cavo Malea on the eastern edge of the Peloponnese. Our hike begins from Malevi’s monastery on the northern edge of the mountain. We’ll pass through a unique forest full of Juniperus Drupacea, an Asian tree that grows only here in Europe! Next, we arrive at the beautiful plateau of Prophet Elias and from there we go to the top at 1935 m (6348) altitude. The descent will either be from the same way or towards Sitaena, a nice traditional village on the eastern side of Mt. Parnonas. The hike can be started from another point and will be approximately 6 hours.
