First snow of the winter season

First snow of the winter season - 7 December, 2017


The mountainous hinterland was dressed in snow yesterday, 6 December 2017. While in the lowlands of Chania we simply put our thick jackets on, a little more ... up, around the "Kallergi" shelter, the four-legged "inhabitants" of the area felt the first snowflakes of this winter season on their ridges.

The Kallergi mountain Refuge was build in 1971 by the Greek Mountaineering Club of Chania and ever since it hosts hikers and climbers from all around the world who want to expirience the majesty of the White Mountains massif and it can accomodate up to 45 people. The refuge is located on the west side of the Lefka Ori massif at an altitude of 1680 meters (5510 ft), above the Omalos plateau.
All the best,
