Lake Vouliagmeni

Fascinating lake. In spite of being literally a few hundred feet from the Aegean Sea, it has nothing to do with the sea water. In fact, the lake came to light when there was a large collapse of the rock in the Middle Ages exposing a hidden cavern. The source of water is unknown. All modern technologies and human beings that have gone thru the cave that leads to the source have come a cropper (and divers have lost lives).

It is believed that the water has some connection to a volcano system given the constant temperature of 75 degrees throughout the year. The lake is filled with Garra Rufa fish – the ones that is supposed to eat your dead skin tissues. In fact, if you carefully watch, you can see a few tourists with their feet in the water enjoying the natural pedicure.

The rock itself looks golden with the sun reflecting off it…
