From the settlement of Agia Irini (1), we cross the stream, pass onto the eastern slope and begin to climb on the old Byzantine path which leads to Omalos, in a north-easterly direction.
The path winds up the ridge. We pass a small saddle and after 2 km we enter a small flat area (2), where we encounter a shepherd’s stone hut and the ruins of another, older one, nearby.
We pass through the flat area and a small dry gully, and continue on the uphill path, with a south-easterly direction, walking on the ridge below and parallel to the main road.
1,5 km after the flat area, we ascend to the main road (3), which we follow eastwards. After approximately 400 m we encounter a cart track (4) on our right, where the branch of the E4 that goes from Sougia via Koustogerako, ends.
From this point on, still following the paved road and having passed by Agioi Theodori, we arrive at the south-west corner (5) of the plateau of Omalos.
