You have to drive to Lastosm next the parking lot there is a small tavern called ‘Kali Limni’ (coordinates: 35.579564, 27.139898). The route starts here, a narrow dirt track leads upside. There are only a few posts all the way to the top, as well as red dots on some rocks. The hiking trail is rocky and narrow, but you will see the right way. The area of Kali Limni is a specially barren, there are no trees at all, natural shades are completely missing. You must carry with yourself some head gear, and don’t forget some meal and some water of course. The walk takes about 1’30 – 2′ hours in one direction, and you reach the highest point of Karpathos.
