38th Pancretan Mountaineering Event

Saturday 8th – Sunday 9th September 2018

Once every year all Cretan mountaineers meet on a mountain to socialise and hike together. This year this event is organised by the Mountaineering Clubs of Lassithi and takes place in the greater area of their refuge in Strovili, in Dikti Mountains.

On Saturday we reach the camping site after a two-hour-hike from Limnakaro plateau. Our baggage is transferred in trucks. Later there are greetings and gift exchange between the Clubs. Then dinner and a fest follow. We spend the night in tents at 1360m a.s.l.

On Sunday there are two hikes. The longer one, 7-hour-long, starts at 07:00 and goes up to Spathi Peak, at 2.148ma.s.l. The shortest one, 4-hour-long, starts at 07:30 follows a part of the E4 trail up to the altitude of 1540m and returns to the refuge. Then there is light lunch served and the event ends at 15.00.

Participants must have their own tent, sleeping bag and cutlery.
