International Mountain Day

Chelmos Vouraikos UGGp is participating to the celebration of the International Mountain Day!
The imposing Chelmos mountain is where the heart of our geopark is beating. It is composed of imestone rocks and combines unique geoheritage (glacial and karstic landforms, faults and folds) and rich biodiversity (endemic species protected by Natura network). Its great aesthetic value is perceived through walking in the forest of Abies cephalonica or admiring the great view from the high peaks. People are living in the shadow of this mountain since ancient times as implied by the rich mythology. Nowadays people are exploiting its rich natural resources.
Let’s protect the mountains so we can breathe and admire the miracle of nature!
