Olypmpus mountain

Mount Olympus (also transliterated as Mount Ólympos, and on modern maps, Óros Ólimbos) is the highest mountain in Greece, at 2,919 (according to new measurements [1]) meters high (9,570 feet) and one of the highest, in real absolute altitude from base to top, of Europe since its base is located at sea level; it is situated at 40°05′N 22°21′E, in mainland Greece.

Mount Olympus is noted for its very rich flora with several endemic species. The highest peak on Mount Olympus is Mitikas, which in Greek means "nose" (an alternative transliterated spelling of this name is "Mytikas"). Mitikas is the highest peak in Greece, the second highest being Skolio (2912 m). Any climb to Mount Olympus starts from the town of Litochoro, which took the name City of Gods because of its location in the roots of the mountain
