Reading Greece: Walking Crete

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  A new book, titled “Hikes, Walks, and Rambles in Western Crete: A Guide” was recently published about exploring western Crete on foot.   The useful guide is written by Angelos Assariotakis and Yannis Kornaros and reflects their enthusiasm for the less-trodden paths of their native Crete and a practical approach to walking. As dedicated mountaineers, the two authors have walked and scrambled every step of the paths they suggest in their guide. The guide includes small maps of each of the 51 suggested routes and information tables about the level of difficulty, the terrain, the duration, the availability of the water and other useful information for the lovers of trekking.
