Things to do Whats On Madari Circular Walk

Madari Circular Walk

We are walking 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). 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.

The fee will be 50 Euro per participant in our car (or minibus), 30 Euro per participant in their car (excluding meals, entry tickets etc). We will have a picnic on the site (walkers bring their own food).

Our car starts from Nicosia.
