About 100km from Thessaloniki our base for the week was the family run Limneo Guest House situated in the rural village of Hrisohorafa (Chryssohorafa) on the south east side of Lake Kerkini where the inhabitants are mainly employed in fishing, farming and breeding buffalo.
Very close to the Bulgarian border Lake Kerniki, an irrigation reservoir, is contained by the natural barriers of the Kerkini (Belles) Mountains to the north and the Mavrovouni Mountains in the south and is an important Ramsar wetland site for its breeding Dalmatian Pelicans and Pygmy Cormorants plus host to many other diverse species. I will explain more about the lakes' history in a future post
Our week here was mainly centered around the wildlife on and around Lake Kerniki plus an excursion into the mountains and further afield.
So here are some images as a introduction for follow up posts.
