Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece. It is part of the Olympus massif near the Gulf of Thérmai of the Aegean Sea, located in the Olympus Range on the border between Thessaly and Macedonia, between the regional units of Pieria and Larissa, about 80 km southwest from Thessaloniki.
Olympus is a mythical journey that you must make as life goes on. Do not underestimate it because it can cost you your life. Show respect to the mountain, prepare very well and climb the most mythical mountain that our homeland has.One September morning, I decided to go up the mountain. I put the basic stuff in my backpack, tied my boots and started climbing. 2 hours to the shelter of Spilios Agapitos and another 2 to the plateau of the Muses. This is what I remembered from the last time.In a difficult passage to the cutter, I got stuck. On the one hand I was looking at the saws and I say if I fall I will be back at the starting point after 6 hours of climbing. Passing by some other riders offered to put a hand. Well dude what do you have inside, weighs over 20 pounds. I answer the absolutely necessary. Drones, battery chargers, everything you need to capture the beauty of the mountain.I used up 100% of my biological battery and discovered a hidden one that I did not know existed and had never used.But when I reached the plateau of the muses, the magic of nature was revealed. I flew as high as I could. MAGIC.
Legend says that Olympus was the home of the 12 Olympian gods. The very religious ancient Greeks believed that the world was created by immortal deities. These gods and their actions served as an example to the Greeks and they were also used to explain phenomena the people of that time were not able to explain in another way. The gods were also called upon for help and support in difficult times by way of worshiping, prayers, and offers.
