Mount Menalo is a mountain full of forests right at the center of the Peloponnese. Homeland of the god Pan and lair of the nymphs, it is associated with many ancient myths. In recent years, it became a refuge but also a base for all sorts of insurgents with the most famous being Theodoros Kolokotronis, the protagonist of the Greek revolution against the Turks in 1821. Its dense forests, old bridges and picturesque villages make up a landscape ideal for hiking. The path from the village Elati to the village Vitina (which is part of a huge trekking of 75 km (46 miles) named Mainalon Trail) is the most beautiful on the mountain because it combines many elements. There are some spots that really make you think you’re inside a fairytale.
