One dracholimn is located in Tymphi, at an altitude of 2050m, NW of the summit of Ploskos (2377m), NE of Astrakas peak (2436m), N of Stomios monastery from which it is 3.5 hours and ABD of the Gamila peak (2497m) which is and the highest peak of Tymfis. It is a bustling mountaineering destination and is known for the alpine terrestres (dragons) that hosts its waters. The lake is 1 hour's walk away from the organized shelter of Astrakas and 5 hours of hiking from Tsepelovo. Access is only possible on foot.
The second dracony is located on the western slope of Smolikas of the second highest mountain in Greece. Smolikas stretches a few kilometers north of Tymfi, with the Aoos gorge bounded. It is also inhabited by alpine tritons.
The areas where the Drakolimnes are located are important pastures where the summer farmers set up their stands by the traveling breeders. These hospitable mountain explorers are very accessible and even have their huts for visitors to their regions who want to experience pastoral life and taste the pure products of livestock.
The springs and the running waters are abundant enough for the hikers to quench. Wild boars, big raptors and many smaller mammals make up the image of the region's fauna.
The many snow covered areas do not usually allow access in winter, while the best seasons for this are Spring and Autumn.
Science sees them as glacial remnants and tradition as dragon dwellings that fight each other, throwing each rock against its opponent on the opposite mountain.
