Description

With their thriving cliff top monasteries are a sight to behold. One marvels at the audacity of the monks who first dared to perch simple shelters on the tiny summits. Nowadays the monasteries are much grander, but we take the privilege of reaching them via rocky paths among the rocky “chaos”. Take the chance to meet this extraordinary UNESCO Word Heritage Site by walking a trail known by the locals. Enjoy the unique views from the top of the rocks and learn by our professional mountain guides about the history and the geological significance of the area. Our hike starts from St. Nicolas Monastery in Kastraki village, following the same old paths the monks used to use, which wind their way amongst the tall rock-towers. We pass beneath the ruined monastery of Pantocrator on the north side of the rock of Dupiani and then the path takes us to the heart of the lush forest reaching the abandoned and restored Monastery of “Ypapanti” and the ruins of St.Dimitrios. Afterwards our trail turns uphill and after a short walk it takes us to the cliff top monasteries Varlaam and Great Meteoro where we will be visiting one of them. We then walk downhill to Kastraki through the rocks by the ancient path used by the monks passing next to the cave of St. George Mandila where every year climbers to hang their scarves.
