Imagine a hike that starts with an altitude of 1230 meters then ends all the way down to the beautiful Libyan Sea. From high up the White Mountains with views of slopes covered with snow... down to the calming sight of this blue blanket:
Hiking Europe's second longest gorge was definitely one of my most memorable adventures while solo traveling in Europe.
I have never imagined myself solo hiking for sixteen kilometers in a foreign land... but I think that I've chosen the best place to hike like this.
If utopia exists, I am hoping that it bears resemblance to Meteora: Karsts reaching up to the heavens. Silhouettes of jagged giants at night. A calming view of villages from the summit. Red-roofed monasteries that seem to float above the clouds. Silence only broken by the sweet melody of chirping birds and occasional winds. A non-fictional world carved out from an animated film.
