After crossing a picturesque valley of orange trees, avocados and vegetable gardens we stop to have a coffee or tea made of mountain herbs in a local coffee shop in the village of Nteres.
On our way uphill we have a nice view of the villages Vatolakos, Alikianos, Fournes, Meskla and Zourva. And at the altitude of 1 350 m, there is the shepherd's hut Mitato where we can get a glimpse of the life of a traditional shepherd and the production of the Graviera cheese.
On our way back we can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the landscape and get plenty of opportunities for picture-perfect shots.
