In the morning of September 30th 2022 our FoMA footpath clearance team made an extraordinary discovery in the woods behind Vatopedi monastery. We followed the gravel road inland and first passed an apple orchard, where monks were busy harvesting:
Soon after we reached the orchard:
We followed our way along the valley and the small, almost dried up stream, and arrived at the spot where we had to go up hill to clean the monopati.
If you walk a littlebit further along the valley and the stream, you will come to this new discovery, an aqueduct. I don’t think that this place has ever been published on the internet (or anywhere else) before!
