  • Passers-by from the area, we decided to do a little walk around the Lake. Apart from the small villages located along the beach of the Lake, offers a nice view and the side of Dogri to Thermo and Petrohori. Petrohori follow the road towards Sitaralona, which passes in front of the Lake and offers stunning views if you have good weather

  • It has countless beautiful places Greece, but unfortunately there is no proper political exploitation and promotion of beauty each place. ETSI and trichonida Lake remains unknown and undeveloped while with proper advertising, cleaning, projects promotion could give too many in the local population which rather ignores the treasure that is next to homes.
