Photographer's Note

Mount Ida known variously as Idha and Ita (the massif including the mountain is called Psiloritis) or Timios Stavros , is the highest mountain on the island of Crete, with an elevation of 2,456 metres (8,058 ft). It has the highest topographic prominence of any mountain in Greece. A natural park which includes Mount Ida is a member of UNESCO's Global Geoparks Network.
Located in the Rethymno regional unit, Ida was sacred to the Titaness Rhea in Greek mythology. On its slopes lies one of the caves, Idaion Antron, the Idaean Cave, in which, according to legend, the god Zeus was born.


I have started at Mygeros refuge at an altitude of about 1500 m above sea level . In google maps easily found. Free parking no problem at the refuge . The path is well marked . The summit is clearly visible as it has a stone shelter built on it. We reached the summit slowly in 3 hours (I took a lot of photos).
The summit has a bell, see in WS. There is a stone built shelter with some religious icons and incense within.

The views will vary according to weather conditions, from the 360-degree view of Crete to the view of the clouds around.
