The hike starts from Chora, following the coast of Neiborio and continues via the narrow uphill path to Gialia Beach, where the river forms a unique natural environment. The route crosses the riverbed and after a while the path leads up to “Fabrica” Ebeirikos Watermill, an interesting derelict factory, which gave life to the area before the second world war, producing pasta using a large watermill, and later a mechanized steam mill. The footpath follows the river, crosses the Leontos bridge and after a few challenging uphill steps we arrive at the impressive Bistis-Mouvelas Tower, dated from the 17th century, in Stenies Village.

Our hike follows a stepped path, across lush landscapes of oaks, olive and walnut trees, along the river,

to reach  Apikia Village and the famous Sariza Spring. We continue hiking, this time to Pythara waterfalls, where we will stop for a while to rest and relax with the sound of the water. For our way back, this time we will descend via a different excellent cobbled path and we will enjoy the magnificent view to the capital city and the Venetian Castle and the Lighthouse “Tourlitis’
