Nondik gertu Áno Alepokhórion (Greece)

A long but relatively easy walk near Alepochori and Psatha.
Following the road around the western part of mountain Pateras.
Finding two amazing ancient towers and some nice little churches along the way.

Total walking time: a bit less than 6 hours if you take it easy.

The 2nd tower from around 350 BC. There were about 7 towers at the time, protecting a passage from Peloponnese to Thebes. The alternative would be to pass near Athens and pay tolls etc.

    Thanks for your comments on 'Athene(Oosten)'
    In the United States and United Kingdom, hiking refers to WALKING OUTDOORS for RECREATIONAL PURPOSES.
    Hiking is an outdoor activity which consists of WALKING in natural environments, often in mountainous or other scenic terrain.(isn't ATHENS A BEAUTIFUL CITY?)
    The word hiking is understood in all English-speaking countries, but there are also differences in usage.
    In fact our visit trough Athens was an excursion, a trip made for leisure, education and physical purposes. Such selection is not possible in Wikiloc.
