Lakkou or Arvanita Dragon Lakes

WHERE: You will find these lakes on the east side of the Tymfi massif, on a 1,450 m. elevation under the towering heights of Goura, the second highest peak of the massif (2,463 m.). They are seasonal lakes which get filled when snow melts in the springtime. Rainwater fills their basins in the autumn, they completely freeze in winter and their waters reach their highest level in late spring.

HOW: You will get there via a forest road which starts 500 m. before the crossroads at Iliochori – Laista, in the area of central Zagori village.
