Overview

Hiking in the alpine Dragonlake of Mount Timfi is one of the most impressive attractions of Zagori.
The hike starts from the village of Mikro Papigko in an uphill, wonderful forest. As we leave the green forest, we come across the alpine scenery and the outstanding rock formations, known as the ‘Towers of Astraka’.
As soon as we reach Astraka’s mountain refuge, located at an altitude of 1950 m, we will enjoy a lunch and then continue our hike towards the mythical dragonlake. The north side of the lake offers breathtaking views of the Smolikas mountain range and Aoos valley, whereas the east side offers wonderful views of the northwest Gamilla Mount.
Return to Mikro Papigo from the same way.
