Streams of Mount Ochi Expedition 2017 (Part 1)

Agios Dimitrios River (Porphyra River) in the gorge.

On August 19 and 20 Karystos, Euboea.

The area around Mount Ochi is a Natura 2000 protected area on the island of Euboea, 60 km east of Athens. This place is not a nature reserve by accident or for any other reason, it combines historical wonders and amazing nature. The landscapes, variety and diversity are incomparable. I can say that for many reasons: a) I have traveled in the Aegean Sea for many years and b) this place is very dear to me, some of my ancestors lived there.

Here I am sharing photo selections from the first of two hikes (two days) from our recent trip from HCMR to South Euboea (Eubeia). The four of us had a great time working the rivers and streams sampling the fish, zoobenthos, plants and landscape.

We thank the local NGO ΣΠΕΝΚ (Karystos Nature Conservation Society) for supporting our trip.

We did the same thing in 2007 and can't wait to compare the water in 10 years. and changes. Check out our old winter report here:
