Lefka Ori  (The White Mountains)

Lefka Ori is situated in Chania County. It is the second highest mountain range in Crete (highest peak Pachnes, 2.453 m).
The mountains, which are rich in limestone, are folded mountains, formed during the tertiary period about 10 million years ago.
The photos are from my trip to Lefka Ori in 2002.
