some examples of walks and hikes
Omalos to Kallergi, Psari
and Melindaou summit (2153m)
is quite a long walk but it is possible
to drive up to Kallergi in the summer.
Bird's eye view of the Samaria gorge
and of Pachnes, fascinating rocks,
crocuses fields in the spring.
Anopolis is one of the
possible continuations of the walk,
crossing the centre of the White
Mountains (2 days in total).
Omalos to Gingilos summit
has the advantage that
no long approach walk is needed:
the path starts just above the entrance
of the Samaria gorge. The path is
well-defined up to the saddle, becoming
a little more difficult further
up. Good views of the plateau of
Omalos and the Samaria gorge. From
the summit you can see both the
North coast and the Libyan sea.
A good walk in the summer as it
is never too hot.
