The Kontogianni-Chelidona road is a very exciting journey located in Evrytania, in central Greece. It’s, definitely, one of the most dangerous roads of the country.
The road is simply extreme. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with dangerous dropoffs. With drops that appear to be hundreds, if not a thousand feet to the side, experienced drivers are the only ones who should attempt this route. You might want to take this into consideration if you have passengers that don't like heights. The road follows the Rema Krikeliotis river.
The journey is 7.1 km long and links the villages of Kontogianni and Chelidona. The area is known for its natural, mountainous beauty in central Greece. The road is mostly asphalted with some gravel sections at the end of the road. This is definitely not a Sunday drive. The drive will take some skill, some patience, and some tolerance for vertigo. It's very intense because there are no guardrails at the edge and there is little room for error if oncoming traffic swerves in your direction.
