Parnitha National Park presents an astonishing biodiversity: 1/6 of the country's flora and more than 1/3 of the country's vertebrates (except fishes) live on Parnitha. Among them, several species are rare and protected.

These facts make the Park an important field for observing our country's natural beauty. However, birdwatching and nature photography are not so popular in Parnitha. This is mainly due to the fact that the mountain's natural wealth is poorly known to the public, but also because there is no substructure for this kind of activities. Therefore, we propose to all the visitors of the National Park to take a closer look at the wild flowers that they will observe on the way, and to listen to the sounds of the forest.

It is evident, that the collection of any kind of plant or animal, is prohibited.
