Snow is something we see rarely in Crete but this in not happening at highlands of Crete.
One of the tall mountains of Crete and Greece is Dikti where #Lasithi Plateau is located.
Its altimeter is not so high, just 800 meters above the sea but is a place which is really cold and every winder snows a lot.
people leaving in Heraklion or in the cities by the sea , after it snows and having a good weather they visit the impressive plateau to adore it covered in white. The views are really impressive with the drone and really unique.
So, Snow is the most impressive reason to adore Lasithi Plateau #Crete #Greece
