Kato Poros is a small village north of the Poros Gorge that is
going south to Vilandredo. The kalderimi is following the western
side of the valley as a balcony. The kalderimi ends in a farmers
road that is part of the road going out for both Nisi (re Ano Nisi
cache) and the Poros gorge northern end and from there up a steep
road to the ridge between the twin gorges of Poros and Moundros
where also the Nisi road ends. From the kalderimi you have in sight
the winding farmers road up to the ridge. Kato Poros has also
tavernas. But in winter time it is quiet with little people around.
One of the tavernas has been open on Sundays also this winter. It
is placed in the middle of the village on the western side.
The cache is a small Lock&Lock box with place for pencil,
logbook and a little trading stuff. Coordinates can be a bit off
