Rhodes Island Butterflies Valley Rate / Comment this area
One of the must-visit locations in Rhodes is the world famous Butterfly Valley, a natural park deep in the forest at the path of a small creek, where the "Panaxia" butterflies overwhelm the area for their reproduction on August.
Millions of butterflies are covering the trees, rocks at the specific small area, a graphical picturesque path in the woods guides the visitor to this incredible site.
Note: Cameras are watching 24hrs/day the area, it is STRICTLY PROHIBITED to disturb the butterflies by clapping, shouting or in any other way, this is a protected natural park and the existence of the "Panaxia" butterflies depends on this location.
There is a small fee for entering the park, there is a restaurant / cafeteria in the area, and a small butterfly museum, as well as tourist shops for souvenirs, don't try to take / catch a butterfly from the park, it is prohibited.
For photography, note you should definitely take a tripod with you, the tall trees hide the sun so the light conditions will not allow you to take good photos without high iso or flash. Flash usage is not recommended since it disturbs the butterflies, and it will not give you a good photo anyway since the whole setting is in low light. Note that if you visit the park less than 2 hours before sunset, the light is very low, its best if you visit the park between 10:00-16:00.
The path is about 30 minutes walking, take good walking shoes with you, since it is a bit rough rocky path, with a few steps and uphill walk.
The park is about 5 km from Theologos Village, and is open to the public during the whole summer.
