The walk to the waterfalls (kataraktes in Greek) is a wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon. The winding road takes you through the small village of Rachi, where you could stop for refreshments at The Bridge taverna, before passing through olive groves, and lemon and orange orchards towards the Dimosari gorge.  The road passes alongside the river and you can look down into the rocky pools and see the twisted roots of the olive trees dipping into the water.

At the end of the footpath the water cascades down the rockface to a pretty pool where the locals come to swim and picnic in the summer.

The walk is about 6km long, and you can get refreshments in Rachi or at the The Plane Tree café at the beginning of the footpath.
