Taygetos Climbing Notes

Stavros from GREECE writes:

Taygetos mountain can be approached from the east side where the city of Kalamata is.

You approach the forest of Vasiliki and the after a 3 hours hike to a spectacular ridge your arrive at the top. Otherwise from the west face you can go until a mountaineering refuge and then make a 2:30 hours hike until the summit.
