Geocache Description:

A nice 4x4 ride ***, or a severe hike (20Km) ***** to the southest peak of Crete

From Timbaki or Mires, go to Sivas then follow Listaros, continue till Odigitrias Monastery. There, you'll start the hike (20 km total) or off road ride. Follow Vathi-Kefali (remember greek caligraphy of those names).
At the WP N 34°56.657 E 024°45.855 you may go left to "Kefali Monastery", or right to "Treasure of Vathi" (that you can combinate with this).
Best is to start with Kefali and finish the day on the beautiful beach of Vathi (27 km total).

Climb now to the monastery on the top of Kefali (who means "head")(see picture "Monastery on top of Kefali") Visit this beautiful place, take a deep breath and screw your pet. Maybe the windiest place we seen in Crete. Thanks for coming.

(Visitors are requested for some maintenance if necessary, don't forget essentials items)

Small note on cache maintenance: Omilos has offered to assist. Thanks! Local Moggul "Wendy" has also offered to assit thanks to her!
