The untouched beauty of the area and the way of life of the people of Tzoumerka is the magnet for those who want to be not just tourists but travelers in the area and to experience their habits and the hidden beauties of the region.
We will start our day from Ioannina and we will make our first stop at the fallen but still proud Bridge of Plaka that is a really historic monument with really long history behind it. After having coffee, we will pass through Katarraktis Village where we will admire the twin beautiful waterfalls during the Spring time. We continue for Voulgareli Village for tsipouro (local alcohol) in the village and a short stop. We start ascending to Theodoriana Village at the foot of the Kostilata the southern summit of Tzoumerka. We explore the village and we climb up higher on a harder road to the Souda waterfalls. We prepare ourselves and we leave the cars. After half hour of hiking, we are in front of the incredible scenery, the waterfalls “hidden from the civilization” give in the southern part of Tzoumerka a splendid touch. We explore the area and relax with the sound of the water. Those who feel empowered can enjoy a frozen … experience.
After enjoying and relaxing in the area, we take the difficult road to Melissourgous Village.

After two hours of an incredible alpine journey, we arrive at Melissourgous Village and in a few kilometers we stop at Pramanta Village for food that only the Tzoumerkans know how to cook (Horizons of Tzoumerka, Pramanta square).
