Hiking to the “Red waterfall” in Orlias canyon and “Koromilia” location – Mt Olympus.
Hiking on Mt. Olympus. Route: To the Orlias red waterfall and Koromilia location.
We meet in Litochoro and transferred by road to the north side of the mountain via Dion and to the starting point of the walk, at the St. Konstantinos chapel, at 300m. Alternatively, we can meet at Dion or the St. Konstantinos chapel itself.
The path unfolds in very dense Mediterranean type forest on the left side of the Orlias canyon, with great view-points of the canyon’s waterfalls. After about 1.15′ hour walk we leave the main path to get into the canyon and visit the magnificent “red waterfall”! Here, in the wormer late spring and summer days you can also enjoy a swim in the crystal-clear pool, before we return back to the main path, to continue our hike. As we move higher and leave the Orlias canyon behind us, the Mediterranean type forest slowly gives way to a pine and beech tree forest.
After 2.30’ to 3.00’ hours of ascent, we reach the mountain refuge “Koromilia” at 1020m, where we have a light meal and a good rest. Our mini bus will take us back down to the starting point and your vehicles.
Altitude covered, 700m.
Approximate net walking time, 2.30’ – 3.00’ hours, moderate.
