All about the Hiking At Mount Olympus, Home Of The Gods.

Litohoro – Prionia

Distance: 23.38 km  Elevation Gain:1,994 m

Min altitude:290 m Max Altitude:1,051 m

Starting off at the Mýlli (Myloi) spot (400m.) you’ll be needing 5 hours to get to Prionia (1100m.). The international and well-maintained path of E4 will make your life easier with its signs and it will lead you through wooden bridges to cross the Enipeas gorge seven times. On the second half of the walk you’ll go past Agio Spileo to reach the Monastery of St. Dionysus 20 minutes later. After another 10 minutes, trace the path on your left and follow it to the waterfalls of Enipeas. The continuous ups and downs require stamina, but the sources, the ponds, the geological formations and the sheer slopes around you will be a fair reward.
