In the verge of the ravine of Aoos in 2.000 m
altitude, you will meet this alpine lake. Its
is particularly impressive and the landscape you
will admire is unique. It has permanent water
and its particular characteristic is the Alpine
Triton (Triturus alpestris), a rare species of
amphibians that resemble small dragons. These
creatures that live in the cold water of the lake
have contributed in the past to the creation of
legends that speak of the presence of dragons
in the region. You can get to Drakolimni
of Gamila after about a two-hour
walk from Mikro Papigo.
Lake Xeroloutsa is actually the union
two lakes that are formed by the water
of the springs of the valley Laka Tsoumani.
It is found in 1.750 m altitude and it offers
a very beautiful spectacle in combination
with the natural wealth that surrounds it.
It does not have permanent water as the
water usually dries up in summertime
because of the small depth, but when
there is water, it is a beautiful
landscape worth admiring.
