      The fabulous Drakolimni lake is located in an 

altitude of 2.050 metres, between the tops      

Lapatos and Ploskos,in western Greece. It 

was named after a dragon, a mythical creature, 

which was said to live in its waters and was in 

permanent conflict with the dragon living in 

Smolikas Mount.

Many years ago, it was believed that the this alpine lake

was  very deep , the waters of which poured 

into Aoos. Later expeditions proved that its 

depth does not exceed 5m. 

In its waters 

lives an amphibian,the Alpine Tritonas (tritus 

alpestris) .It is considered a rare species and is 

protected by the Greek and European
