A beautiful and technical route which -starting from Thrakomakedones- climbs up to the edge of Flambouri and reaches the Flabouraki top. At its beginning is quite steep. The route is amazing as you climb up due to the great view it offers. As we walk towards Flambouri, we will pass from Mpafi refuge and then towards Skipiza. There we will drink water and head to Casino. The route has some poins where attention is needed like climbing up to the ridge.
Equipment: Back pack for mountain or a school type back pack, a flask of water, snacks, sturdy hiking shoes or strong sports shoes, a raincoat or fleece. Perhaps a 2nd set of clothes will be necessary.
The path starts from the Teleferik parking point. A map and the specific meeting point will be announced at the Favebook Event page.
