Setting off at Skalia (1) in a northerly direction, the footpath leads us down to a little dry valley, which we follow; having walked through a narrow rocky passage, we arrive at a small plateau (2) with a dirt road running through it.
At the north-eastern side of the plateau, an abandoned single-storey building can be seen. Just after passing through a boundary fence which we come upon at the eastern edge of the plateau, we leave the dirt road, and turn left onto a path; this crosses a small saddle (3) and then begins to go down the northern side of a low summit.
Down below to our left a stream can be seen, which a little further beyond turns into a verdant ravine, abundant in water.
We presently reach a point on the slope where Zakros (4) appears ahead of us to the east; we descend to itafter we have passed below the village water storage cistern.
Reaching the western entrance to the village, we can follow the route that leads us to a bank of the ravine where the water spring of Zakros is to be found.
