GPX Track (mine, but with pauses)

Type: Circular

Length: 12.64 km (7.86 miles)

Time: 4:30:00-5:00:00

Difficulty: Hard

Total climb: 793m (0.49 miles)


One of my favourite trails because of it’s views, length and difficulty. Total climb is hell, especially if you carry a tripod. It goes through open spaces and forest as well. You will visit second highest peak of Cyprus and both parts of island – north and south from one point. And there is a fire looking station there.

GPX Track

Length: 7.61 km (4.72 miles)

Time: 2:04:40

Difficulty: Easy

Total climb: 350m (0.21 miles)

Start/Finish: 34.933202, 32.87181

Perfect one for beginners with few stunning views, going through open areas, forest, ski center. You will also meet 500 year old black pine. Visit it any time of year – at summer it will be nice place to get rid of heat. At winter (December – March) difficulty becomes hard because you don’t see the trail and at some places snow gets to your knees. So mind to get good high boots if you go there at winter. Also if it is snowing police may not permit you to enter Troodos area. You can always check current condition with the help of webcam in Troodos: http://www.skicyprus.com/webcam/ Also mind that at this height it’s about 10C less hot than at sea level.

You will see stunning cloud views if you go not in summer period.
