Our shady summer hike to the top of the Chondhradha (Χονδράδα), an about 1100 m high elevation below the Timos Stavros, the peak of the Psiloritis.
We walk through a seemingly enchanted stone oak forest above the village Lochria. Between beautiful moss covered trees with small clearings in their midst which makes you always expect to find a goblin or a forest elf behind the next tree.
After a hike of 2.5 hours we reach the peak of the Chondhradha with a fantastic view over the whole island of Crete.
The finale of this enchanting excursion takes place in a quaint Kafenion in Kamares.
