Karveli – Tourist Kiosk of Taygetos
On the 13th kilometer of national road Kalamata– Sparti, we turn on the road leading to the village of Pano Karveli, to begin the route Karveli- Tourist Kiosk of Taygetos. Just before the village we meet the source, which is the start of our walk. Opposite to the source we find the small forest road which leads us downhill to the stream of Karveli. We have to walk for 15 minutes on the path of Karveli – Tourist Kiosk of Taygetos and in front of us theri is the stone bridge connecting Pano Karveli with Emialoi. The site is unique, especially in the spring. We ascend the trail and after a detour to Emialoi, we arrive at the village of Lada. We take water from the springs and eat something if we want and then go up the village street.
We continue on the road after the last houses and shortly after we find the uphill path Karveli- Tourist Kiosk of Taygetos. We walk for a while on a path and sometimes on a road and in about half an hour we meet the national road Kalamata- Sparti. We cross it vertically and find the trail again which after 20 minutes crosses again the highway. We walk on the asphalted street for about two kilometers to get to the Tourist Kiosk of Taygetos and we can enjoy one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes.
The overall route Karveli – Tourist Kiosk of Taygetos is about 5 hours.
