|Language of name||greek|
The previous name of the mountain, Sàos, which means safe is still used in some maps. The current common name, though, is Fengari or Fenghári and it means moon.
According to a local legend, anyone who stands at the top of the mountain during the night of a full moon will see something that they wish for coming true. 
Access to the summit
The easiest way to access the summit of Fengari is via the northern side of the mountain. During the summer, this area can contain considerable cloud and mist. On clear days, though, the view from this area includes a large part of the northern Aegean Sea and stretches from the Troad in the East to Mount Athos in the West.
Due its height and the diversity of its climate, many very interesting and rare plant species can be found on Fengari. On its cliffs and gorges, for example, polygonum icaricum can be found: this only grows in Samothrace and in Icaria. Several subspecies of potentilla montana also grow near the top of the mountain. In addition, the mountain contains a very rich and diverse variety of bird life.
