mighty peak top
Our path starts from the Mountaineering Refuge at 1550 m altitude. After a while we exit the fir forest and we enter the alpine zone where the peak rises above us. In the vast area of alpine fields, following the rapid and rough ramp lead us to ”Portes” point at 2250m altitude. The pyramid-shapped peak stands in front of us. A last final push will reward our effort. 2407m above sea level everything looks close to us! So rewarding!

The Taygetus, Taugetus, Taygetos or Taÿgetus is a mountain range on the Peloponnese peninsula in Southern Greece. The highest mountain of the range is Mount Taygetus, also known as “Profitis Ilias”, or “Prophet Elias”.
Taygetus Massif is about 100 km (62 mi) long, extending from the center of the Peloponnese to Cape Tenaro, its southernmost extremity. It contains the tallest mountain in the Peloponnese, the Profitis Ilias summit, reaching 2,405 m (7,890 ft). This is probably the classical Mount Taléton mentioned by Pausanias. The summit is an ultra-prominent peak and its because of the tektonic movents, the mountain grows up!
