Dimosari gorge is located on the north east side of mountain Ohi in South Evia island and is one of the most beautiful walking paths in Greece. The 10 kilometer path starts at a height of 950 meters and ends at Kalianos beach in the Aegean sea. Walking path is singed and some of its parts were build in early medieval years as it was until recent years the only way of communication with the rest of the world and the city and port of Karystos.
Dimosari gorge is crossed by Dimosari water stream that especially during spring time and early summer is very strong strengthened by melting snow and underground springs. Its water is crystal clear and in many spots it forms natural pools in which many visitors dive and swim under small waterfalls! Most of these 10 kms are full of green and covered by the shadow of perennial platan and chestnut trees. Wildlife is very intense inside Dimosaris gorge since many unreachable spots offer refugee to many kind of animals like foxes, wild birds, lizards and snakes.
