The Psiloritis, also called after the summit chapel Timios Stavros ("Venerable Cross"), is Crete's highest mountain. The hike on Psiloritis is long and requires a good deal of physical fitness. In the upper part of the hike the path is exposed and crosses steep scree fields. Those who choose the simpler variant through the gorges will see nothing but stones for hours. Mentally this is a show of strength, a pleasure walk is definitely not the tour. The variant of the mountain cows requires more experience and endurance, but is much more scenic landscape. We can only recommend this variant. Please note that you are at well over 2000 meters. The weather can change quickly here and it can be very cold in summer. In addition to sun protection, adequate food and solid hiking boots warm and windproof clothing is required.
