Omalos Plateau Pond
(2 votes)

On the southern side of the Omalos Plateau in the White Mountains and between the starting point of the Samaria Gorge and Seliniotikos Giros, a seasonal lake of about 0.8 hectares is formed, which is covered by snow in winter. More small lakes are formed on the plateau in winter, with this one being the largest.

The lake retains water until summer and hosts several species of aquatic fauna and flora. A large reservoir has been built very close to meet the needs of the plateau for summer crops.
