I'm planning on being in Crete this May from the 10th to the 17th. I will be staying a couple of days in Anopoli and hope to be able to walk up Pachnes.
Several years ago I was hoping to do this in early June but there was still too much snow.
Does any one have any idea what kind of winter they've had in the White Mountains?
I'm also staying a couple of days in Omalos to walk up Gingalos which isn't too tough even if there's still a bit of snow on the ground.
This will be the earliest in the year that I've visited Crete. Will there still be flowers blooming in the Omalos and Anopoli plateaus? By the end of May/early June they seem to be mostly gone.
