Cretan mountains

You know the Cretan beaches and the beautiful Aegean sea, but what about the Cretan mountains?

Crete island is extremely mountainous and is characterized by four great mountain groups. To the west there are the White Mountains featuring at least 20 mountain peaks over 2.200 meters high. The highest mountain peak of Lefka Ori is Pachnes, in an altitude of 2.453 meters. Central Crete is dominated by the highest mountain range of the island, Psiloritis or Idi, with the highest mountain peak, Timios Stavros, in an altitude of 2.456 meters. East from Psiloritis lies the mountain range Dikti or the Lasithian Mountains with an altitude of 2.148 meters, while further to the east there are the Mountains of Thryptis, also known as the Mountains of Siteia with an altitude of 1.476 meters. Mountains cover 52 % of the Cretan land in contrast with lowlands that cover only 3,6 % of the land
