Description

After leaving Dimitsana, you venture high up into the mountains.

The treeline reaches the summits, and paths often opened up to plateaus, throwing you off a sense of progress after a hot climb. A small village, Elati, acts as a lunch stop.

A 1km climb off the main trail led us to a deserted village.

The local taverna was locked and nobody around—all except two dogs who were more than happy to help us eat our only Cliff Bar.
