Path Toward Mavrolimni

Driving up from the Chelmos ski resort toward the Chelmos Observatory in our vehicle, we park at the point where a steep slope begins. At the end of that road on the left, there is an information kiosk for the Chelmos-Vouraikos National Park. From the information kiosk, the road continues to the left toward Aristarchos, while to the right it goes downhill toward a sheepfold. This location is called Ano Lithari, and just before the sheepfold we find the beginning of the footpath to Mavrolimni and the Waters of Styx (Idata tis Stygos). Mavrolimni is a seasonal alpine lake (the only one in the Peloponnese) of glacial origin. It has water when the snow on the surrounding mountains melts. From a distance it looks like a triangular soccer field or baseball diamond! The footpath going down is relatively passable and takes about 30 minutes. It requires care, as in some parts the terrain is unsound and slippery. We go down 150 meters in altitude, so the return is a little more difficult.
