    Zagorochoria - Drakolimni - Ioannina Welcome to Epirus highlands. One of the most popular destination in Greece. Dozens of traditional, stone villages that maintain their cultural identity. They are divided by rivers, stone bridges, geological shapes, the Vikos Gorge. Hiking in the innumerable paths of Zagoria, climbing on Smolikas and Drakolimni but also activities such as parapente, and excursions for wild mushrooms. Epirus Drakolimni (Dragon Lake) exceeded my high expectations the morning as we arrived at twilight. Trecking the night at -5 Celsius at 2050m H. with a medium wind and a beautiful full moon. The colors there were surreal at the alpine zone. The medium altitude lake sits in a tableland behind Astraka mountain (seen in many photographs). The lake got its name from an old myth that a dragon used to lived there in primordial times. Lot of thanks to Apostolis Demertzis for his exceptional guidance and his help to our trekking there.
