About 1,5 km before Xiloskalo (1) a dirt road begins, which after 5 km leads to the summit where the Kallergis mountain shelter (2), of the Mountaineering Club of Chania, is located.
Those who wish to ascend directly from Xiloskalo, may take the path which begins at the end of the paved road and follows a north-easterly direction, climbing on the slope parallel to the boundaries of the National Park of Samaria. After approximately 30 minutes, the path crosses a dirt road, on which we continue towards the Kallergis shelter.
The hike from Xiloskalo to the shelter takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
