We did the trail between Monodendri and Vikos during April. It takes about 6 hours of good walking and the view is great - the greenest place of earth in my opinion. relaxing as heaven

It is really a shame that we came during the winter , Vikos gorge is a location that one must visit during summer and have the ability to walk through it.

The view of Vikos Gorge at Monodendri from Agia Paraskevi Monastery and from location Oxia is breathtaking. From both locations you can understand that Vikos Gorge is a masterpiece of God.

Deep, sometimes narrow gorge with breathtaking views. Not heavily traveled, in part because it takes a steep walk down and up to access. Difficult to find reliable information on current conditions -- trail can get wet, dangerously so from snowmelts and high river level. And access trails can be steep and strenuous.

If you want a challenge, walk this gorge in the rain with wet leaves. We just did this hike and found it very challenging with these conditions, it took us 5:45 hours of careful walking, we were wet to our skin by the end of the hike and could wait to get back to the hotel for a hot shower....

Walked the standard route: Going down into the gorge in Monodendri and came up at Vikos. Started around 8:45 and finished around 12:15. Quite easy walking and quite boring - no water in the "river" (end of October). Tip: Solved the problem with getting back to my car parked in Monodendri by bringing along a bicycle, which I had parked... More

I was at monodendri and the trail there begins at the central square besides the restaurant and It took 5 hours to reach vikos village. I didn't find easy to do the trail due to the slippery stones. The path is very well marked with signs ( red spots, red arrows and O3 sign) at the stones and trees!
