Lefka Ori - White Mountain - Pachnes

The most impressive excursion of the White Mountains you can do is at Pachnes mountaintop, which may initially seem very arduous but can be accomplished without much difficulty as you can see in the pictures and will read below.

The White Mountains or Madares occupy the greater part of the prefecture of Chania are the largest mountain range in Crete, with a length of 50km and a width of 25km.

With about 50 peaks over 2000m altitude, Pachnes being the highest at an altitude of 2453 meters, the White Mountains are generally the tallest mountain range of the island.

All those who have visited the White Mountains admit that it is one of the most wild and beautiful mountains that exist, with huge craters that can have been created by meteors or volcanoes thousands of years ago.

In the area there are many mitata (shepherd’s house) some of which are still in use.

Pachnes mountaintop can be accessed with 4x4.

The distance from Anopoli is 25 kilometers until the end of the dirt road at an altitude of 2000 meters, about an hour drive, and then you need an one and a half to two hours hike to get to Pachnes mountaintop .

The route is spectacular and if there are no clouds in the sky, the view from the mountaintop is breathtaking as you can see both the Libyan and the Mediterranean Sea.
