Every summer a few brave people wake up before sunrise to participate in the walk to Psiloritis. They climb up the stone made trail when the first sunbeams shed their golden touch on the highest summit of Crete to attend a religious ceremony at the chapel of Timios Stavros. They 'fight' with their bodies and souls against the power of the mountain, in an attempt to conquer it. The contest is tough; but at the end the colors of the rising sun, the endless horizon, the pleasure of achievement, and -of course- the traditional feast that follows are the best reward!
