Description Suggest change

Wildly overhanging sport climbs loaded with unique formations (stalactites, tufas, blobs, etc).

Getting There Suggest change

Past the town of Masouri look for the impressive cave and park near the hotel "Philoxenia".

From the hotel, walk up the steep paved path, and use the small gate on the left at the top (and make sure you close it behind you!). Then, head up following the obvious path (you'll remain always on the left side of a small gulley). There are also piles of stones to help you.

Generally, you are quite simply going up to the impressive cave with steep climbs loaded with unique formations (stalactites, tufas, blobs, etc).
