The mountainous region of Evritania is out of the classic sites tourist map. It is a region addressed to nature lovers, who seek authenticity and action within a mountainous landscape. The valley of Karpenisi, is surrounded by three mountains of almost 2000 meters altitude, it has fast flowing rivers, gorges and lakes which can only be discovered through hiking, biking or off road trails. Not to be missed the gorge of Panta Vrechi (always rains!), the Monastery of Prousos (spectacularly built on the edge of a gorge) the via ferata in the Gorge of the Black Cave.
Behind Mt.Kaliakouda lies a very well hidden paradise for nature lovers. After an interesting dirt road ascend – descend of the spectacular mountain we end to the riverside of Krikelopotamos. We walk in the riverbanks and in the rivers crystal clear waters for about 45 minutes until we arrive to the waterfalls of Panta Vrechi, actually meaning in Greek "it always rains".
The day starts from hotel that you choose to stay, at 09.30 in the morning. After driving an interesting with very beautiful view dirt road on Kaliakouda mountain, we stopped on the highest view point, at 1700m. to take pictures. In about 1.30 hour stopped near the Krikelopotamos river. We leave the jeep and start the trekking into the river. After 40 minutes we arrive at the point with waterfalls. We stay there for swimming and after that we return back to the jeep.
