Hello, Since 2013 I have had the desire to explore mount Olympus and something always happened and I postponed it... But finally this summer i managed to climb this fantastic mountain. Me and a friend of mine traveled from Athens to Litochoro (416 km) on Friday. On Saturday early morning(6 a.m) we began our hike and we returned at 6:40 p.m very tired,but very excited from the beauty of the landscapes we saw. Let me share some photos...
Kakoskala is the climbing path,that connects the 2 summits , Skala and Mytikas .
I'm a trail runner/hiker,so in some points i didn't feel safe and comfortable.
Louki of Mytikas is also a climbing path-another way to reach the Mytikas Summit . It's also dangerous mainly because of the landslides if there are other climbers above you,so it's recommended that you wear a helmet. But in my opinion it's a safer way than Kakoskala

After that we traveled back to Athens. What a great weekend!
