From Papigo today we went steadily uphill to the Astraka hut (1,920m). astrakarefuge.com/enFrom there it went through an impressive high mountain landscape to the Drakolimnisee where the endemic newt lives. Past snowfields, orchids, gentians and all other colorful mountain flowers ...And then back to the hut ... A really great mountain hike!If I didn't know that I was in Greece, I wouldn't believe it. This is really far from all clichés and expectations, especially scenic ... And tonight we are the only guests at the hut.
You're doing it right, away from mass tourism and all the clichés ala Alexis Sorbas. (Although I don't think the work of art is that bad.) Have fun and accident-free through the mountains
