This tour is a real challenge to test your fitness. The start is deep into the mountains in the isolated village of Moustakos (550). Here begins the climb of 6 km. along a seldom used, narrow tarmac road to the top of Mount Lakkos (1018 m.). The end is an army post at the top of the mountain from where you have commanding views over Southwestern Crete. The reward for the effort is a 1000 m. descent over 18 km. mainly over wide tarmac roads down to the greenhouse village of Koundoura. The last 6 kilometers back to Paleochora are along the coastline.
