The ascent to the top of Kalamos, the distinct monolith of Anafi (the second highest in the Mediterranean, after Gibraltar) is a unique experience. The total distance is 2.5 kilometers, with the altitude difference from the beginning at the monastery of the Life-Giving Spring (Zoodochos Pigi) to the top and the monastery of Kalamiotissa approximately 370 meters. Climbing time: 60-75 minutes. The view from the top of the rock (460 meters altitude) is amazing. Many visitors go at night to wait for the impressive sunrise.
