Begin october 2011 Peter, Jacques, Wim, Bas en Herman from Holland walked in app. 10/11 hours to the summit of Mount Athos afterwards returning to Skite Anna. Two started the trip from Skiti Prodromou. Three of us began the hike in Paulou monastery. Both groups started the trip on a height of 100 meters, climbed to the summit which is at 2026 meter and ended the hike at 200 meter above sealevel.
My brother Wim is almost there.
A new chapel (Metamorphosis) is build. Materials can only come in carried by mules.
The new chapel is much bigger then the old one. They had to blast the marble boulders to get the space and to flatten the surface.
