    I have used this map successfully for the last two pilgrimages to the Holy Mountain. It seems accurate, although a photo of Stavronikita is labelled as Vatopedi.

  2. Dimitris says:

    I give my thumbs up to this map as well. I have been using it as well and I never got lost once! I probably need to buy a new copy though, cause mine is getting rather worn out. The detailed height levels are of a particular help, because they give a fairly good idea about a footpath’s level of difficulty.

  3. Vasilis says:

    I bought the map last summer in Ouranoupoli. I also think, like Richard and Dimitris, that it is a very good map.

  4. Vasilis says:

    But it is remarkable that on this new map the summit of Agion Oros is on 2033 m. On its predecessor it is 2027 m.
