Brief Description:

The path starts from the village of Karia and goes continuously uphill through the cobblestone paths of the village. After while we meet the first watermill.

Continue on going uphill, starts the path to lead us to the heart of the plain trees forest with flowing waters. Ideal place to rest and to hear a fairytale for young and old friends about one history which is still alive through centuries.

Our route continues to cross the forest for about 40min.During to our trekking tour we will see the rest watermills which some of them they are in a very good condition.

After while we reach a glade that we meet one chapel with a large yew next to it.
Locals use to say that under this holly Pausanias get rested while he passed from that spot.

From that spot the path starts to downhill through the fir trees and making a circular route the path ends to the village.
This route is not a simple walking tour but trekking tour because of its elevation difference and its ‘mountainous form’.
