Exochori to Kardamyli part 2

The walk down from Exochori follows one side of the Viros Gorge, the natural feature that dominates the landscape. Following the way markers took us too low at one point, so that we had to climb back up to get to our meeting point at Petrovouni. Also featuring on this part of the walk were various views across the gorge to Agia Sofia (Church of the Holy Wisdom in English).

Enjoy these photos…

The line of large stones marked the edge of the path until it was plundered for building materials - the extension beyond the line of stones being exactly as wide as a lorry wheel.
