The Gorillas or Kourilas at a height of 1658 m is one of the biggest mountains in Thesprotia. In comparison to other mountains of Epirus it is a low mountain. Therefore, since it is mainly steep, it lends itself for difficult mountain climbing activities. The mountain is full of paths which were created by the obstinate inhabitants of the area with the passage of centuries.
A starting point for someone to walk through the mountain can be either Paramythia, which is built at its foot, or one of the villages of Kariotis and Chysavgi, at a short distance from Paramythia- the center of the area.
The best time of year to climb the mountain is at the end of spring.
Then, apart from the breathtaking view of the plains of Paramythia, you will enjoy the scent of tea in bloom.
The taverns of Chrysavgi (Velianis) amongst the plane tress and running waters are well known. Therefore, you will not have any problem getting a bite to eat. Nor will you experience any problem finding a place to sleep. Many agro-tourist lodgings are in operation.
