Hiking in the “Tempi valley crossing route” & Via Cordata in the “Clefts’ traverse”
Hiking & Via Cordata in the Tempi Valley.
We meet at the west end of Tempi valley. After we have met, we are transferred to the starting point of the walk in (10’ by road), the same as for the Apollo Ridge, at 20m. We take the so called “clefts’ path” – an escape way full of legends and stories – quite steeply for the first 20’ and easier for the rest of the length, until we reach the starting point of the via Cordata traverse at about 270m. Stunning views of the western end of the valley and the river Pinios down below! This will take 1.00’ to 1.10’ hours of moderate / challenging walk. Gained altitude 250m.
At the starting point of the Via Cordata, we gear up and your guide /s introduce you to the basics of safety and use of equipment. The feeling is unique as you make this high traverse across the cliffs enjoying views beyond words! Duration of the Via Cordata route, 1.00’ hour.
At the end of the traverse we descend through a ravine and after a series of 3 small abseils particularly enjoyable by the younger ones, we reach the main classic path – after 1.00’ hour’s descent – to continue with the classic Tempi valley crossing route, all the way to the east-end of the valley, finishing at a picturesque chapel where the picnic is waiting for us, at about 100m.
We have completed the full Tempi valley high crossing in a very special way, enriching this wonderful hike with the Clefts’ traverse! This will take another 1.45’ hours of easy but very nice hike. Altitude loss, 150m.
