In the summer, on the meadows low in Valia Kalda, but mainly on the bare landscapes around the summits, studded with flowering thistles and other herbaceous plants, we will see several species, other quite uncommon, such as the impressive Parnassius apollo and the dark Erebia melas, and other widely distributed, such as the colorful Vanessa cardui and the golden yellow Colias croceus.
