A highly reviving excursion through a close contact with mountain Troodos natural environment; breathe in fresh air and enjoy the surrounding plantation along with the view of the scattered villages in your background.

The Troodos mountain range with its idyllic forests stretches across most of the western side of Cyprus offering cool sanctuary in summer and opportunities for sports in winter. Famous mountain resorts - a great way to cool down and escape the fierce summer heat of the seaside, Byzantine monasteries and churches perched on mountain peaks or nestling in its valleys. The mountains are dotted with picturesque little villages built at the hill slopes enhancing the magnificence of this area. The mines here were widely known since ancient times. Byzantine art was established in this area where churches and monasteries were built during the Byzantine period. 

 

A trip into the mountains will provide a refreshing change from the heat, with fresh air, giving the opportunity of visiting many scenic spots on the island. Our destination is the Troodos Plateau the natural beauty at its best. After a short brake we begin with our trekking under the shade of pine and plane-trees to Kalidonia falls, situated 3,5 km north of Platres village and have height of 1200 meters exhibiting all characteristics of real falls. At the base of the falls a pool has been formed, which the vapor produced spreads to some distance around.

 

The trail is about 1,5 meter wide with interesting types of vegetation on both sides. You meet the Troodos pine tree, which grows exclusively on the high peaks of Troodos, the wild apple-tree, the Troodos juniper, the sage, the rockrose, golden oaks, gorse and others.
