We changed our original plan of walking from/to the top of Pantokrater beacuse a) the path starts below it and b) it was extremely hot and why walk the extra 100m ascent up the road when you can drive there.
On the decent we took a small path off the main track which was very over grown and difficult to follow. On the return we took the much better short cut up to the shelter, which is clearly the main path now and the other has fallen into disuse. We recommend taking the short cut.
Peritheia has 4 restaurants of high quality and resonable prices which make a good lunch break before returning. It is an abandoned village, quite picturesque and worth exploring.
Of course there is no reason why this route cannot be done in reverse from Peritheia to Pantokrator.
We parked off road opposite this junction.

Follow this path if you haven't taken the alternative (recommended in hind sight) path at the shelter.
A typical view of this route.
An impressive stair case to the property on the left which now looks occupied.
One of the 8 churches can be seen on the left.
This is the first view that those travelling by car will see.
Excellent food and service visited by Rick Stien and David Bellamy!
Beautiful hills in this part of Corfu
Marks the point to turn off the main track and take the path down to Peritheia.
The monastry comes in to clear view over head towards the end of the return route.
