Hiking in Drakolimni of Tymfi.
The alpine lakes on the high mountains of Pindos, in Zagori, are very popular not only among the local shepherds but also among climbers, due to the beauty of the natural habitat and of course the myths. The most prevalent one is the dragons’ myth (which were possibly born in the form of alpine tritons), and it is the one behind the name of the lakes (drakos in Greek: dragon, Dragon lake – Drakolimni). Guests can explore the area around Drakolimni on a day hike (usually starts from Mikro Papingo and lasts for 8 hours) or they can stay in the shelter of Astraka during the night and continue their hike in the next morning (starting form Mikro Papingo, hiking for 3.30 hours to the shelter and 1.30 from there to an altitude of 2.150 meters in Drakolimni).
