The peak of Gigilos (1.974m) rises above the Samaria Gorge, Omalos plateau and offers breathtaking view of mountain range of Lefka Ori.
The mountainous landscape, the impressive slopes of Gigilos and the unique rock formations makes this trekking interesting and beautiful. The stunning view of the Samaria Gorge, the famous stone arch which highlights the trail and last but not least the chance to enjoy a panoramic view to Omalos plateau from the top make this route definitely worth the effort.
You need to be in a good physical condition because the path is steep, but also very clear with a spring of water about in the middle of the hiking.
So, put on your boots, bring your backpack and let Alternative Crete lead you with safety on the top of the mountain!Book The Tour
