Timfi (Tymfi) is part of NW Pindos and was carved by water very quickly during the Pleistocene. Visitors will meet several plateaus with alpine vegetation, complex relief and spectacular altitude variations. There are geotrails to Dragon Lake at 2100 meters, Xeroloutsa (a formation which was created after the retreat of the glaciers) Gamila and Astraka peaks, Provatina (one of the deepest perpendicular precipice worldwide, -407m) and Hasma Epous (a double scalar precipice, -451 m and -419 m deep) which are the most interesting complex geological alpine environments. Precipices are the result of the perpendicular karsting of limestones and of the presence of faults

Tymfi (or Mt Tymphe, Timfi also Tymphi, greek=Τύμφη) is part of NW Pindos and was carved by water, very quickly, during the Pleistocene. Visitors will come across several plateaus with alpine vegetation, complex relief and spectacular altitude variations.

There are geotrails to Dragon Lake at 2,100 m. (greek=Δρακόλιμνη), Xeroloutsa (a formation which was created after the retreat of the glaciers), Gamila and Astraka peaks (greek=Γκαμήλα, Αστράκα), Provatina (one of the deepest vertical precipices worldwide, -407m deep) and Hasma Epous (a double scalar precipice, -451 m and -419 m deep), which are among the most interesting complex geological alpine environments.
