The Cyprus Walks Etc invites you to join them this Friday on a superb 13-km long circular trail near Madari mountain peak (elevation about 1,650 m – in the area of Pitsilia, on the Troodos mountain range).
The trail is of medium difficulty, without very steep ascents and descents, but with quite significant total ascent and descent (850 m each). One may enjoy great views towards the north, including Morphou bay, and to the south, including the village of Kyperounta and Troodos peak (to the west there is view towards the village of Spilia). There is great variety in vegetation; travellers walk past golden oak, wild rose and mastic bushes, junipers, pine, strawberry trees, rock rose and sage, and even cedar, plane trees and bracken.
One may also see the interesting rock formations in the area.
