(1 Vote)

The small plateau of Monokara is located on Mount Ornos, at an altitude of about 750m. Access is possible from the villages Tourloti and Sfaka. On the plateau there is the picturesque temple of the Holy Cross and many cottages for staying overnight in summer months, when locals keep crops of vines, apples, pears and walnut trees. This small plateau is the starting point for the beautiful gorges of Tsigounis, Koudoumis and the stream of the Kinopotamos.
