WHERE: It is a mountainous lake on Mt. Smolikas, right between Fourka and Samarina peaks. Mosia’s waters are blue during the spring and the summer and become frozen in the winter. The main lake waters flow partly into two other smaller lakes. If you walk around them you will notice the thriving populations of alpine newts swimming in those freezing waters. Drink in the view of this isolated landscape and of the precipitous slopes around Mosia.
HOW: Follow the path starting from Samarina village, to get to Mosia Dragon Lake. Take the ascending track through the pine forest which stretches further up and to the west of the village. After a 2-hour hike along a well marked path you will reach a spring; after that you cross an area of particularly rough terrain where nothing else grows but lovely gentian and tulip flowers. Head southwest and after approx. 3.5 hours, you will reach the lake on a 2,150 m. elevation.
