Geocache Description:

A kalderimi is an old donkey trail. The Kato Poros kalderimi starts in the southern end of Kato Poros by the E4 sign. Both the Poros Gorge, Moundros Gorge and the ridge between the twin gorges, are E4 marked.

Kalderimi start:

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 here
