Seeking the Waterfall ... in Lefkada island
An interesting hiking trail in the wooded gorge of Dimosari will reveal a hidden "secret" for the beauty of the island: the famous waterfall with the crystal clear waters! How do we discover it? ... Follow us… By car, we arrive in the cosmopolitan Nidri and watching the signs, we turn right. We pass, for a while, from lemon orchards and we arrive, after three kilometers, at the beginning of the path where there is a refreshment bar. From here starts the path above the wide bed of the gorge, protected briefly with wooden rails.
(Hint: Before you begin, wear athletic shoes, cotton socks and long pants to avoid sprains and abrasions). Around us there are steep slopes, while the wild olive trees and the holly add to the landscape their own colors. Below, the river flows with its crystal waters, while its water song accompanies our steps. Where there is sufficient volume of water between the rocky riverbed and the vertical slopes, small blue lakes are formed, ideal for swimming (if we endure the cold water).
The path lowers and we reach the riverbed. We cross it by jumping over the rocks (caution, it is slippery!). Immediately after there, is, in a physical cavity on the ground, a triangle pool, 3 meters deep. We ascend some cement steps. Things start to become difficult ... Beside us the water flows over the smooth rocks with hum. We feel the power of water very close to us now. Some measures of careful ascent and before us the impressive waterfall is revealed, 12 m, falling with force, forming a small green pond at its base. Astonished, we enjoy the spectacle. Well worth it ...
