Dermati is a high mountain town at an elevation of 1.020m (3,346ft) above the sea level located in Evrytania, in central Greece.
The road to the town is just extreme. It’s 4.9 km long, gravel, rocky, and the surface on this road is often loose, especially along the sides of the road. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Your wheels will be astounded at the wonderful views of the mountains spread out before you! They are terrible for drivers who are prone to vertigo. In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails.
The road to climb up to the town is extremely steep, with 21 hairpin turns. Don’t stuff your belly too much. Eventually, you might feel vomiting temptations while climbing circuitous roads at higher altitudes. Starting from the Prousos - Karpenisi road, the ascent is 4.9km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 541 meters. The average percentage is 11,04% with sections up to 15%.
