Telendos - Inspiration

By: Simon Montmory
Country: Greece, Region: Kalymnos, Town: Telendos (Kalymnos)

With its big arch 100m off the ground, the sector Inspiration is certainly one of the most impressive and beautiful climbing areas on the islands of Kalymnos and Telendos. The view is awesome and there is still a huge potential of routes waiting to be equipped!

GETTING THERE

From Kalymnos take the boat to Telendos. From the village of Telendos, take the path going to Princess Canyon. Turn right 10m after the second door, and follow the yellow marks to the bottom of the crag (45 min). The path is excellent and it’s also a very good walk if you are not a climber. It gives another view

GETTING TO KALYMNOS
By boat

Kalymnos can be reached by boat from the island Kos. Once you have landed in Kos, take a taxi to the port at Mastichari and catch the next boat to Kalymnos from there. Mastichari is 10 minutes by taxi from Kos airport and the taxi ride costs €12 - €15 euro in total. Regular ferries and smaller speed boats make the Mastichari – Pothia (Kalymnos) route regularly. The ferry ride takes approximately 45 minutes and costs €4; the speedboat takes approximately 25 minutes and costs €6.00. When you arrive at Pothia (the main port in Kalymnos) you will find a number of taxis waiting. A taxi ride to Massouri costs between €10-15, depending on the number of passengers and luggage. Alternatively, you can rent a scooter or car, or inquire about the public bus schedule departing in front of the City Hall. There is a tourist information kiosk at the port exit. To check the Kos – Kalymnos ferry timetable, go to www.danae.gr and enter ‘Mastichari’ and ‘Kalymnos’ in the respective fields.  You can also call the Port Authority of Kos for an automated timetable message in English on the following number: +30 22420 26594. In the unlikely event that there is no taxi waiting at Pothia, call the taxi station on the following number: +30 22430 50300.
