This is the path from Skiti Ag. Anni to Lavra. The route you see here goes first to Katounakia but is it also possible to start climbing at Skiti Anni and skip Katounakia. This is the shortest option.
Stavros where you can go to the top or walk on the 700 meter line to Lavra.
If you take a close look you see here the point where the path to Lavra takes a left turn. From this point it will take ca. one hour to reach the oldest monastery of the mountain. The zig zag path goes to Sk. Prodromou.
This is the point where you take a left turn to Lavra. It is also possible to visit or stay in Sk. Prodromou. Then you follow the sign on the photo.
The same spot but now with the red sign to Lavra.
But before start walking again enjoy the great view on Sk. Prodromou and K. Akrathos.
And then finally the first glimpse of Lavra.
