What to expect
  • Starting from the spring of 'Manganiari', at 980 meters above sea level, from which the route to the shelter starts, through a well-marked four-kilometer trail, you will come across a rich flora and fauna that you will have the opportunity to photograph. This part is characterized by the ease of climbing up, as well as the imposing, enormous, high-level, perennial black pine trees that will accompany you. After 2 hours of exceptionally enjoyable hiking, you will find yourself outside the historical hut of the mountaineering club of Sparta. From the shelter, at the location Varvara at 1,550 meters, from where the second part of the route to the top begins, the vegetation gradually decreases, while the slope increases in a rocky environment. During the hiking, you will have the chance to see the entire Laconian plain and the neighboring mountain Parnon. The path features a variety of geological formations as well as the impressive natural pyramid that stands on the top of this legendary mountain and will watch your steps. Generally this path has no technical passages which makes the use of rope and helmets unnecessary and the ascent pleasant. Leaving behind you the Laconian side of Taygetos and climbing the last steps of the enigmatic "pyramid" you will meet the unpolluted chapel of Prophet Elias, while in front of you will see the view of the Messinian Gulf, which with the ideal conditions of visibility can be seen unobstructed until the white mountains of Crete.

It was my first time climbing a mountain and it was an unforgettable experience. The best part of the trip was definitely staying at the top of Taygetos, a room of a thousand stars, and of course seeing the phenomenon of the pyramid.. just magical. Our driver Alex was very professional, he helped us a lot with the equipment and he was very pleasant all the time. I felt safe and had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend Climb up if you are also fun of adventure.
Thank you for this amazing experience!!

It was my second time climbing at the top of the mountain Taygetos and the first one with climbup. Our guide Alex was very helpful and willing to explain us everything about the mountain and what we were watching around us during the route. We stayed one night at the top and the view with the stars was amazing. He really helped us with the equipment we needed. The path from the shelter wasn't really difficult and i recommend everyone to give a try. Thank you very much Alex and Climbup.
