Trail Detailed Description

At the western entrance to the village of Tzermiado (1), where the Health Centre of the Lassithi Plateau area is to be found, a dirt road begins, which snakes on the slope until the small plateau of Nissimos.

Just after the entrance to the plateau, there is a left branch of the road (2) which leads to the foot of the western slope, next to a small chapel (3)

Northwards, in the distance, the summit of Selena can be distinguished.

At the spot where the unsurfaced road ends, a clear footpath begins; this path passes by the Vitsilovrisi water spring (4) and then climbs on the southern side of a hollow where traces of ancient terraces are clearly visible.

After approximately 30 minutes of ascent, we arrive at a saddle on the mountain line (5) from where the impressive summit of Karfi can be seen. 

On the saddle between the main mountain line and Karfί, the ruins of an ancient town of Eteokrites are located.
