Lake Taka is located 10 kilometers from Tripoli and is one of the most important wetlands in Arcadia and the entire Peloponnese. But it is also a natural phenomenon. The springs supply it with fresh water and it drains through a system of underground rivers. Hence in the summer it is drained completely, creating a marsh, and in the autumn it begins to fill again until it reaches full capacity in winter. As a result of this process the village Vouno on the banks of Lake Taka, is right at the waterside in the winter and in the summer it is inland! Lake Taka provides water to the crops of the Tegea plain. The projects involved for the subjugation of the water are important, they ensure that there are no floods in the plains. In investigative excavations in the lake traces of ancient Manthirea have been identified, from which came the old name for the region «Manthouriko plain.»
