After our short visit to Koutloumousiou we started walking to Iviron. With the help of a GPS-App I could trace the route that we walked and show it here on Google maps. The distance was 4,86 kilometers and it took us 1 h. 07 m (max altitude 432 m). I doubt if it was the fastest route, but who cares, it was beautiful all the way.
Here is how Zwerger drew this path:

The path passes the brook a couple of times: this bridge is almost covered with moss and leaves and it fits in natural way in its surroundings.
Behind the thick vegetation Skiti Koutloumousiou shows up.

On the same bridge, view on the other side, towards Koutloumousiou. The path was in good condition.
Not far from Iviron monastery the Panaghia chapel is to be found.

And then, in all its splendor, the mighty monastery of Iviron showes up.
