Mavra Kremna

Mavra Kremna

Mavra Kremna is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.016m (6,614ft) above the sea level, located in Western Crete, in the Chania prefecture, Greece. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit, located in the Lefka Ori ("White Mountains") or Madares mountain range, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. In the White Mountains there are many caves, canyons and gorges.
The road is usually impassable in winters. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Expect a trail pretty steep. There are many excellent photo opportunities. Don't forget your camera with lots of film/memory, fully charged batteries and an empty memory card! The snow covers most peaks in June, while the alpine zones above 2,000 meters are bare of vegetation and there is no water in the summer.
