Travel Blogs from Monodendri

28km in the deepest gorge in the world!

A travel blog entry by adambrownell


From Kalambaka we took a chance and see if we could make it to our next destination - Monodendri. Being the low season and only having a population of 164 people, we knew it would be tough! There was only supposed to be buses running twice a week there..year round!!

Luckily, we got in contact with a hotel in the town in which the owner …

... we always say we're from California instead of America or the US) and then proudly announced that there was a Greek Orthodox monastery at "Shasta", of course meaning Mount Shasta in Northern California. Maybe some day we'll have to visit there, too.

The monk insisted that before we leave we visit their kitchen and have some sweets that they made there at the monastery. We then climbed up to the highest point of the monastery and were stunned by views that ...

Beloi Means "Great View"

A travel blog entry by haysnoe

... 1,120 stairs that zig-zag up the nearly vertical canyon edge. Amusingly, at one point there was a crudely-produced sign that said, "Look Down", presumably a prompt to remind us to check out the incredible views all around us and especially down below. While the verticality did provide some difficulty physically, the stairs are actually rather well-conceived and well-designed and we were able to conquer them with only moderate difficulty, though we were certainly ...

Thunder, Lightning - World Around Me's Frightening

A travel blog entry by haysnoe

We were able to enjoy another terrific breakfast at our hotel in Kastraki, Guesthouse Lithos, and to visit the last of the six Meteora monasteries. Of course, the views from the top, after making the necessary long climb up, were spectacular and we lingered a little longer than usual not really wanting to leave the area. But we'd seen everything we came to see and had the next part of the northern mountains portion of the trip in front of us so off we went. ...

Stone Bridges of Zagori

A travel blog entry by footloose_llr


We had specially requested a higher floor room in our Monodendri booking thinking a second floor room would give us even better views......which it did......but it was also yet more stairs so we got those thrown in as well....... Honestly we should all have calves of steel by the end of this trip! This is the first time we've all been in a room together but even though it was a two night stay there seemed to be plenty of room. It helped also that our bathroom habits in terms of ...

    A 3 star hotel, family run with everything you need. The rooms are great, the owners helpful, interent access, restaurant and breakfast included for 45.00 euro a night. Again, we hit the low season so a different story had it been a lot more experience! My word, if your willing to drive 35 minutes to the bus station to pick us up and take us back to your hotel...that's winning by my books!
