1483 – the hike from Vatopedi to Skiti Dimitriou

Soon after we got our room in Vatopedi we started our walk to Skiti Dimitriou, a place I wanted to visit for a long time.

This is the route we took: see the two maps of MotionX-GPS and Zwerger map.

Here the path splits: to the right leads to Karyes and the left it continues to Skiti Dimitriou
