Plateau Katharo


Our hike begins on the plateau in the village of Katharo. We will walk on the plateau and head towards the church of Timios Stavros which is an approximate distance of 4km. We then start the descent into the canyon of Havgas.The scenery is just magnificent, we will see shepherds and their flocks, wild goats, vultures and eagles to name but a few and if you can visit in the spring, the wide variety of flowers and their colours leaves you with an unforgettable memory.Inside the canyon we head to ‘the ball’, a place the locals call Νεραιδακολυμπος (fairy bath).From there we turn back to exit the gorge where a vehicle will be waiting to take us to Lassinthos Farm for a lovely visit before our dinner.
