Man’ Katsa Waterfall

Description

The impressive Man’ Kasta Waterfall is located in the northeastern part of Lesvos as a part of the Aspropotamos torrent, close to the town of Pedi. The waters drop from a 15 m precipice, resulting in the formation of a pond in a small basin. The whole vicinity is made of volcanic rock and the waterfall was formed on top of volcanic ignimbrite rock 17 million years ago on account of a violent eruption of the Lepetymnos volcano. The eruption caused the formation of an immense fault that cuts right through the ignimbrite rock and the Aspropotamos river bed, forming an impressive waterfall at that point.
