"Eptastomo" Cave pothole of Mt. Parnassos

Guide | Touring

The pothole can be found in the Kalania area to the west of Mt. Parnassos. "Eptastomos" is the most southern glacier in Europe because of the glacier in its interior, which is preserved all year round. Its name originates from the 7 openings-potholes that lead to its interior. The central pothole has a depth of 80-100m. & a diameter of approximately 200m. The descent to its base is extremely difficult and dangerous and its ascent requires much effort. This is the reason that its descent is only performed by organized groups with specialized knowledge. A phantasmagoric element within the pothole is the "underground" sound that can be heard on occasion, as if the cave is breathing. The sound stems from the wind that comes into the pothole from the surface via its openings.
