The mountainous and tortuous road is asphalted but dangerous. It’s steep, with some drop offs unprotecte by guardrails. Pictures don’t do it justice. It’s a mind numbing vertical drop of hundreds of meters so you might want to give it a miss on a windy day. It’s, probably, one of the wildest roads of the country in the slopes of mount Dirfys.

The road links the villages of Paliouras and Glifada. It’s 19.1 km long with 18 hairpin turns. Its highest elevation is at 966m (3,169ft) above the sea level. It is subject to winter snowfalls. Your wheels will be astounded at the wonderful view of the valleys spread out before you! They are terrible for drivers who are prone to vertigo.
