The Astraka peak belongs to the Tymfi complex wich is a complex of peaks and its said to be the most beautiful complex in Pindos mountain range.Surounded with other peaks like Gamila, Lapatos, Tsouka-Rosa and many others, the complex is "protected" by to canions (Vikos and Aoos).It would be unfair to declair the peak itself megnificent since the whole complex including the Canions its a special place.The Dragonlake, Voidomatis and Aoos rivers, the high platos, wild life all of this is protected under federal law which forbides hunting, fishing and other activities that are against the words "take with you only photograps and memories and leave behind only your shoe tracks".Plenty of people are visiting the place from world-wide every year and for those who are fond of mountain climbing the Astraka refugee offers acomodation and some basic comforts and from there you can explore easily the peaks, high altitude lakes and the platoes.

The easiest rout to Astraka peak begins from Small Papigo village.
