Hiking Mt. Dikti

Limnakaros plateau and Spathi summit

Get ready to ascend Spathi (2148m), the Dikti mountain range’s highest summit. The hike begins at the Limnakaros plateau at 1050m above sea level, where we can visit the Byzantine church of the Holy Spirit that still has some remnants of its original murals. We will initially walk on a dirt road. When the road ends, we will continue on the E4 trail until we reach Seli, where we will turn northeast to reach the summit. The panoramic view from the summit is amazing. You can admire the Lasithi plateau, the Aegean sea, and the view to Katharo Plateau on the east. In order to get back to Limnakaros, we retrace our steps.

It takes five to six hours to complete the hike. On the way back we could visit Dicteon Andro, the cave where, according to Greek mythology, Zeus was born.
