The walk to Dimosari waterfalls takes only about 15-20 minutes on a mostly well maintaned footpath, with some rocks, stairs and curves. During the walk some old plane trees provide shade for hikers. Along the trail a small stream flows and you can see in some places smaller waterfalls, but the main waterfall is located directly at the end of the route. Dimosari waterfall is approx. 15 meters high, surrounded by large rocks and cliffs. The nature forms here a small natural pool, where you can cool yourself, but be aware – the water is very cold here! Usually there are some visitors who are trying to swim in this pool, but it is really recommended only for those who like the icecold water temperature.
In the hottest and driest summer months, especially in August the volume of stream significantly decreases, or in extreme cases the waterfall dries out.
