Long Pelion Trail
The fifth part of LPT is a long and demanding trail with a total length of 24km. Nevertheless, it shows to the visitor all the aspects of the natural beauty of Pelion, combining many different ground types and sceneries. The hiker crosses pristine forests of beech, around the area of Chania, walks along rocky ridges, close to Schitzouravli, gets lost at the hidden bays of Aegean Sea and wanders around the colorful orchards.
After walking through the small settlement of Chania, we hike heading to Schitzouravli and Dramala, two of the highest peaks of Pelion.
