Mt Chelmos flora
Mt Chelmos (2355m), also called Mt Aroania, is located in the northern Peloponnese and is characterized by a variety of geological substrata and soil types. The main elements of its landscape include well forested slopes with Abies cephalonica and Pinus nigra ssp pallasiana forests, steep calcareous cliffs, the Mavrolimni lake(2050m) of glacial origin and the impressive Styx valley associated with a small wet cave, and the Mavroneri waterfall at its base.
Erosion of limestone has mainly contributed to the formation of a strong relief with steep calcarous cliffs and screes.
