All about the trip
Join us for an easy hike up Mount Ochi, the third highest mountain on the island of Evia. A beautiful, rocky mountain which towers proudly over the blue waters of the Aegean Sea.
Mount Ochi is home to the prophet Elias church and also many of the infamous ‘Dragon Houses’. The Dragon Houses, of which there are approximately 20 or so, are made from huge stone slabs and have no-accepted theory to identify their creators, their reason for existence, or even when they were first built. The first account of their existence is from the 18th century British geologist, traveler, and writer, John Hawkins.
The largest Dragon House is found near to the top of the mountain, at an altitude of 1370m. Reaching the top of Ochi mountain and seeing the Dragon Houses is relatively easy and suitable for most people. The total length of the hike is 4.2km with an elevation of 381m.
It will take us about 2hrs to complete the hike, so this one really is quite easy and suitable for nearly the whole family. The entire tour, including travel to and from your hotel, will last for approximately 6 hours.
