You can walk through this beautiful valley where you can find thousands of butterflies (during summer season). There is a small creek that flows through this valley which also gives the possibility to take photos of the smal waterfalls. remark: You have to stay on the trails which does not allow you to go directly near the water.
There is a taverna at the lower entry where you can eat. There are even more possibilities to have a drink within the valley.

Photography Tips

Go there in the morning when there are less people and temperatures are lower. You can also take a tripod with you to take longtime exposures. A normal 24-105mm lens (fullframe equivalent) does the job.
Do not forget a tripod and an ND filter if you want to take longtime exposures of the water.
