Lampiri-Kouli road

Lampiri-Kouli road

Lampiri-Kouli road is a narrow and dangerous high mountain road located in southern Greece. The road still remains an adrenaline-pumping journey and is definitely not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs.

The road is asphalted but really narrow. It’s 14.2km long and is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. A quick glance at the map, at its sheer drops and serpentine twists and turns, confirms that this is no hype.

Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime and can sometimes block some sections of the road. The road links the towns of Lampiri and Kouli.
The road is winding, in some places only wide enough for one vehicle, and in many places bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. It’s really steep, climbing up to 1.451m (4,760ft) above the sea level near the Prousos mountain.
