Our route starts from Megali Ammos and more specifically from bus stop n.5. After you ascend through fragrant pines and pass from the picturesque chapel of Saint Antonios it ends up in the asphalt of the slope. From there one of the most beautiful trails of the island begins with uphills and downhills in a woodland area with amazing views to Pilio. The trail ends in the yard of the monastery of Kechria. There hikers freshen with the cool, clean water from the source and have the opportunity to study the remarkable wall-paintings of the Monastery. Then we get into a little paradise which connects the Monastery with the graphical beach of Kechria. The path then moves into the homonymous stream of natural beauty with perennial planetrees, dense vegetation and running water. In our route we can see an old watermill and an equally old oil press . What follows is the picturesque beach of Kechria where during summer there is a refreshment bar . There, after we freshen up in the crystal waters of Aegean we begin our return crossing the stream of Achilas. The basic features of this route are the waters and the beautiful forest which leads to the region Leivadakia . We continue through a dirt road for 1.5km , and we arrive in one of the few traditional cobbled roads preserved and where there is the fountain of Mammous. The end of the journey is not far since we only need 700m to reach our start point .
