Man’ Katsa Waterfall

The walk to the Man’ Katsa waterfall is short and mostly flat (if only going to the top of the falls). The volume of water in the falls changes considerably throughout the year. After heavy rain, the place where the photograph was taken can be a metre underwater. The photograph above was taken in the spring, and in late summer it can simply be a damp wall covered with green algae.

In spring the area around the falls has many wildflowers including some lovely orchids and lots of interesting wildlife. At this time of year, it is definitely on my “Must Visit” list.


On the Mytilene to Mantamados road, take the dirt road on the left about 90 m before the turning to Aspropotamos (when heading north). Follow this dirt track for 1.2 km then look for a wire ‘gate’ on the right. You should be able to park near the gate and then walk. There are signs and the path is well worn. After about 100m you should come to a picnic area at the top of the falls and a steep path that leads down to the base of the falls (where the photo above was taken).
