Anemotrypa Cave

The only cave in Greece crossed by a river along its entire length , the cave of Anemotrypa in Tzoumerka. It is considered the most white cave in Greece, as it hosts clear limestone. It has a constant temperature throughout the year that reaches 19 degrees Celsius while the temperature of the water reaches 10 degrees Celsius. Having the form of a steep gulf on the earth the cave belongs to precipice caves.

The river crossing the cave has shaped the interior in three levels. Small ponds are formed in the cave with a more impressive one towards the end of the route. The lake is blue due to the quartz crystals on the bottom.

The first level has collapsed and few parts are rescued.

The second level is crossed by a path of 250 meters in length and extends into 10 halls. At the end of the second level and about 10 meters below the path, there is a two –meter high waterfall .

At the third level we meet the riverbed. The rocks of the cave are aged between 12 and 15 million years old.
