ROUTE A

MOUSON PLATEAU (Giosos Apostolidis & C. Kakkalos Refuges) - LOUKI - MYTIKAS

Starting out from the refuges of Giosos Apostolidis (2700 m) and Christos Kakkalos (2650 m) in Mouson Plateau continue the route towards the high peaks on the path that starts at both refuges. Passing the area known as Portes on the right, continue along the path passing beneath Stefani and arriving at the saddle between the two peaks, at this point to the left and in front, is Mytikas and to the right is Stefani. Follow the red arrows painted on the rocks which lead to Mytikas after an approximate 30-40-minute hike. This part of the route through Louki is difficult and dangerous due to the risk of landslides.

ROUTE B

MOUSON PLATEAU (Giosos Apostolidis & C. Kakkalos Refuges) - PROFITIS ILIAS - TOUMBA

The routes from Giosos Apostolidis Refuge to the peaks of Profitis Ilias (2803 m) and Toumba (2801 m) are extremely easy. It takes only 10-15 minutes to arrive at the peaks and enjoy the unique view over Pieria Plain and Kazania respectively. It is well worth paying a visit to Profitis Ilias chapel which is located on the peak of the same name and was built in the 16th century by Saint Dionysios. It is the highest built chapel in the Balkans.
