The village Kosmadei is about 12 kilometers from the city of Karlovasi. I visited this village back in December on my birthday. On the way there, I came upon another village, Nikoloudes which I had no idea existed. I guess I didn't see the sign below very clearly because as I was coming up on Nikoloudes, I actually thought it was Kosmadei, and was a bit upset Kosmadei was even further up the mountain, another 2 kilometers to be exact. I almost turned around to go back to Karlovasi because it was getting late, but I'm glad I didn't, because I don't know if I'd ever have the chance to come back. Kosmadei gets it's name from an inhabitant of Kastania, by the name of Kosmas. It is about 600 meters above sea level.
