Entering the Selato gorge and steadily gaining height, we reach the village of Kapesovo which hides on a small plateau above hanging cliffs. We then climb the famous Vradeto Steps, a 300-year-old paved mule path; a vertical climb up the sides of the Mezaria gorge.

Day 4: Walk from Monodendri to Vikos village via Vikos gorge. Return to Koukouli by mini-bus transfer

The crossing of Vikos gorge is one of the most esteemed hikes in Greece. It is an unspoiled place with a great diversity of flora and fauna. In the heart of the gorge is the source of the Voidomatis which is the cleanest river in Europe. This is a long day’s hike on the floor of the gorge, crossing dry river beds, passing next to bear caves (empty!) engulfed by the dense foliage. Vikos gorge has been a central feature of life in the region for the past 40,000 years and stays untouched to this very day.

Evidence of human presence can be found in several caves from before the last ice age and can also be found in abandoned churches of the mid 17th century and stone bridges of the 19th century.
