MAVROREMA : THE HIDDEN TREASURY OF MT. PARNITHA
On Sunday the 15th of April SAS offer a real hiking experience at the heart of Mt. Parnitha.
Mavrorema is something between a river and a … creek at an area exactly in the middle of the National Park, deep in the pine-forest where you feel like you are in … Olympus mountain despite is just only 25 km from Omonia square … !
Duration of the hike is seven hours approximately, height differences are not more than 400 m but because of its long distance to be covered, level difficulty could be considered as hard !
Hiking boots, trekking poles, raincoat and reliable equipment generally are always highly recommended. For any case don’t forget also your head-torch !
Meeting point is at ‘ Paliochori ’ area on Mt. Parnitha at 10:00΄ a.m. As you reach Agia Triada chapel, of course by … car, at an altitude of 1050 m and after you have already passed all the sharp bends of the mountain, turn left at the junction just 80 meters before the church and drive 200 meters furthermore, then take the right fork and after 500 meters you will see a stop-bar where is a parking area and a spring with running water. Here you are ! There will be also a secondary meeting point at 09:15΄, at ‘ Plateia Aristotelous ( Thrakomakedones ) ’ north side where the ‘ Steki ’ Café exists, in order to help somebody with a lift or … to be helped by SAS drivers to the final starting point, but please declare your intension.
As there is no … tavern at the surrounding area, a long term … picnic could be taken place by the bends of the river ! For additional fill of our … stomach an alternative idea could be the traditional tavern ‘ Nontas ’ in Aharnes. We’ll think about that !!
For those who are interested in participating, please declare up to 14th 10:00 a.m.
Leader will be Georgos Foteinos, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Emergency phone 6945 386255.
