About 1 hour from Corinthia lies the village of Vlachokerasia, built at an altitude of 950m and full of dense flora with plane trees, chestnuts, walnuts and cherry trees.
Here lies the area of the Forest of Skiritida, where Evrotas River flows from, occupying an area of 10,000 acres at an altitude of 650m to 1100m. This green area is south of Mount Mainalo, east of Mount Taygetos and west of Mount Parnon.
The path is 14km long and the duration of its crossing ranges from 6 to 8 hours, depending on the amount of time you spend on the interesting places you find on the way. The scenery includes a piece of the Forest of Skiritida, the unknown places where Evrotas River flows from and the hills (about 1080m high) where you can admire the beauty of the landscape. The route goes like this: 4km through the dense forest, 6km along the river and its branches and the other 4km on the ridge of a hill which is called “the balcony” of the area.
We will pass through old grooves that used to supply big basins, made for the watering of the orchards, and other ones that used to provide water for watermills; we will walk through abandoned fields, places that haven’t been stepped on by humans for more than 30 years and others that have never been stepped on.
The path is in the heart of the forest, with very tall trees offering oxygen and many birds and other life forms joining you along the way.
