The highest peak of Thripti, Stavromenos (altitude of 1476m) hosts the windswept chapel of Lord Christ (celebrates on September 14) and a small shelter. The shelter has a fireplace and is locked due to vandalism suffered a few years ago. For the key, ask at village Thripti.
The views of the surrounding areas is truly amazing and the visual field covers both the north and south coast of Crete, and the whole isthmus of Ierapetra. Stavromenos can be accessed through a snaky road that starts from village Thripti.
