The Lassithi Plateau is said to be one of the most beautiful areas in Crete. As I have not seen other areas than eastern Crete I would not know. It is stunning though – also we did not meet at lot of other tourists at our day trip in the beginning of July.
The plateau with a huge amount of agriculture land is hidden about 800 meters up in the Dikti Mountains and still surrounded byg high mountains. You will also see lot of old windmills and many of them are still used to pull up water from the underground.
We found that the area was wery calm and peacefull and we did not meet a lot of oter cars while we drove arround, stopping every now and then to take in the stunning views and wander arround small villages. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
