Kakiskala cliffs on the way to Gingilos
 

I have mentioned Kakiskala on a couple of occasions (enter Kakiskala in the search bar at the bottom of this page to find out where) so I thought that it was about time I showed a photo of the area. If you have walked to the summit of Gingilos you will remember passing through a large rock arch on the way to the spring of Linoseli. Kakiskala (it means 'rotten staircase' and might be a reference to the crumbly state of these cliffs) is the area of cliffs immediately after the arch, to your right as you continue walking.

The cliffs are full of plant life and very difficult to access (so no goats to eat the plants!) because the rock is really crumbly. You can get to the foot of the cliffs but even that is difficult as you need to scramble up a fairly steep scree slope. And there are often rockfalls in the cliffs themselves so being right below wihtout a helmet is not such a good idea either.
