Walking on snow only …, Saturday 14th January, 12:00′

Walking on snow only …

On Saturday the 14th of January at 12.00 midday we will meet each other to participate in a never forget epic … hike through the snowed paths in Mount Parnitha.
The hike will take 3 to 4 hours depending on how much deep … the snow is on the trails ! The target is to reach either “ ETHASA ” fire lookout station or St. Peter chapel, it depends again … It’s level of difficulty is hard because of the snowed terrain ( if not has melted until 14th ! ) and despite the limited, up to 200 m, height difference.
Due to the rough condition of this hike, waterproof ( Gor-tex if possible ) hiking boots, spats ( to prevent water getting inside the boots ) and raincoat are highly recommended as well as poles and reliable equipment generally. For any case don’t forget also your head-torch …!
After the end of the hike we would have the opportunity to take lunch or meal at “ Bafi ”Mountain Hut.
Meeting point is in the park area of “ Bafi Refuge ”, 3 km after “ Agia Triada ” place on Mount Parnitha, along the main road on the right.
Take your precaution, cause this walk is recommended for hikers with some experience …

For those who are interested in participating, please declare up to13th mid-day. Leader will be Georgos Foteinos, e-mail geoplanf@otenet.gr      Emergency phone 6945 386255.

See you soon !

Georgos and Anna
