  • This was a totally random jaunt. We had seen a picture of the gorge and just thought it would be interesting to see. It was a good 45 minute walk to the start of the gorge if you haven't got a 4x4.....  more

  • We did the hike starting from the seaside and up till the end of the gorge and loved every inch of it. We returned on the road, which also rewarded us with great views.

  • A great excursion in a breathtaking gorge. It was quite a hot day, but very shady and cool in the gorge. We drove with our rental car to a small church, but the last part we preferred to walk to the car park and the entrance to the gorge, because the road was a bit too adventurous for our taste. Our KIA would probably not have been able to cope. We hiked up the gorge for about 50 minutes, had a picnic and then hiked back the same way. If you’re lucky you spot wild goats and the red dragonfly. Better wear good shoes and take water and snacks with you - there is a taverna nearby but it is another walk away. Recommend, recommend!
  • We never did a hike like this before. But “you haven’t seen Cyprus if you did not do this trail” so we wanted to try it. The road towards the parking area already is a challenge. Many holes and bumps in the road. Some very steep hills. Challenging to drive. We decided to walk the last part to the parking. We parked the car at the sign of the restaurant. The last part just was too steep for my taste. The trail itself is gorgeous! You do need good shoes because you have to climb many rocks. But the views are beautiful! We did not do the entire trail. Halfway we turned around and went back. On the way back everything looks different so it did not feel that we walked the same path twice. Recommended !!! On the way back we stopped for a brief moment at the turtle beach
