Photographer's Note

National Park of Vikos-Aoos.
Drakolimni of Gamila (Dragon Lake).
In the verge of the ravine of Aoos in 2.050 m
altitude, you will meet this alpine lake. Its place
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.
