Lagou Hani – Kalamata

Ιf we start from Kalamata for the route Lagou Hani -Kalamata, , we have to go to the 8th kilometer of national road Kalamata- Sparti and follow the signs for the village Nedousa. Shortly afterwards we pass the stone bridge and from this point, which is named Lagou Hani we can start walking.

The road, after an hour and a half of hiking on the route Lagou Hani – Kalamata stops and we follow the path right to the temple of Artemis Limnatida. The river Nedontas flows under the path and to the opposite side the national road Kalamata- Sparti climbs to Taygetos.

At the highest point, the path Lagou Hani – Kalamata takes a semicircular track and we cannot see the river and the highway. For a while we think that we follow another path, but soon we find again Nedontas. We walk at the same height and the course is effortless. We pass a sheepfold and approach the monastery of oak, the perfect place for a rest stop. We take the road back to Kalamata through a path interrupted by roads until the new market and bus of Kalamata.

The lenght of this great hiking trail Lagou Hani – Kalamata is about 6 hours and a half.
