Mountain Zeus sits 1003 meters high and the cave is at 600 meters high or 1950 feet. First the drive to the cave is a bit treacherous narrow without guardrails. You park on the mountain side with just enough room for one car to pass....More

The road up is a paved single lane road with some non-guard-railed sheer drops visible to the side, not a problem in our compact rental car. There is room for about 3 cars to park at the top. There is a nice stone paved trail...More

We didn't actually make it to the cave. The drive to the "parking area" was thrilling enough. The very narrow and winding dirt road takes you right next to a gigantic cliff with no railings! We made it as far as we could by car...More

The cave was disappointing, but the 20 -25 minutes trail to reach it was so beautiful. It is the same way that guides you to the top of Mount Zas. There were plenty of goats.

The reviews I read on Tripadvisor helped a lot. If you ride/walk as far as you can go up the mountain its a short walk to a spring. You can drink the water from the spring or take some with you. After that follow the...More

The hike to Zeus' Cave is fairly difficult, involving climbing up dirt and rocks, and will be a challenge if you aren't an avid hiker, and the path is poorly marked with red dots. We were told it would take 10 minutes to hike there...More

I'm short over weight and in my 50s. But I climbed that and only needed a bit of help twice when I was a bit too short to climb up. It was a hard climb for me but was so worth the effort. It's just...More

Először is azzal kezdeném hogy az út a felénél túl NINCS kiépítve. Olyan kisgyerekeknek és felnőtteknek ajánlom akik SOKAT túráznak. Vigyázat sok szikla van, és lefelelé sokkal durvább az út. English: First of all, I would start by saying that the road is NOT constructed...More

Although probably of historical interest, unless you have a very powerful torch ( our smaller one didn't cope), there is little to see at this cave, even though it supposedly goes back 100m. Most of the track to it is paved, with a bit of...More
