Extremely difficult excursion!!
At some points you need good climbing experience. You have to have with you 5-6L of water and sleeping equipment. There is no path at the difficult part. If an accident happend it will be almost imposible to rescue the team (it will take days to reach and the summit line it is too technical to move an injured man/woman)
After the technical part you have to descent 1.400m to reach palaia agia roumeli but the field is very steep and there is danger of injury.

We started from krousia (1.200m) above ai giannis

(for more info about ai giannis region aks alonia guest house:

https://m.facebook.com/groups/aloniasfakia/?ref=group_header&view=group )

And we went through zarani pass to potamoi sheperd house.

Zarani pass is one of the most beautiful places in lefka ori. It is old pass where the sheperds from ai giannis and aradena moves with their sheeps to high lefka ori for the summer season. There is a source there but during summer it is better to ask if there is water at alonia-antonis.

From zarani source the path is descending slowly to potamoi (the start of eligias' gorge)the last part is difficult and it is not easy to find the path.

From the sheperd house we ascent t the summit line between the 2 gorges, samaaria and eligia and moved south. After vathia seli and alatsopetra summit we camp at the summit line for the night.

The problem with beviouac at the summit line is that you are exposed to wind. That was the reason we was looking the stars all night...strong winds didnt let us sleep.

The second day early in the morning to continue to the summitline until aggelokambi. It is very technical part, only for those who are strong, expirienced in lefka ori and who can carry 12-15k backpacks and climb with the backpacks in a very wild terain and in the group MUST be 2 people who have done this before. Max group 5-6 persons.

From aggelokambi there is a difficult descent to palaia agia roumeli. There is no path is is steep and easy to get injured..

From palaia agia roumeli we went to agia roumeli to "recharge our batteries". 2h break to drink eat and go to the beach and the river.

After that there was the most difficult part. We were tired it was the waest time of the day under the hot sun and sand...we moved east until the south entrance of eligias gorge where we started the ascent to fliskounias and from there to kormokopos.

The part from fliskounia to kormokopos cave is also little technical and it has many exposed parts!! Before you try this ask a local. Furthermore the path is NOT clear and there are NO signs.

From kormokopos cave (we lost the path and we accidentaly went little more east just few meters but there are blue signs that goes to the cave) there are just few km to ai giannis.

Before you go to lefka ori note that there are very dry, during the summer it is too hot and an average human needs to consume at least 5 liters of water in a day.

    Hello Eftihis,
    thanks for sharing this track. I've planed different times to walk this ridge down to Angelokambi, but never done. The images you have attached are very interesting and helpful to classify the dificulty of the path.
    Regards Matthias
