  • A wonderful walk with interesting/exciting scenery but I wish I'd worn shoes that I would have been happy to get wet. There were multiple occasions when you had to cross the stream running through the...  more »
  • Find Canyon simply, there are pointers, plus we used Navigator ITA MI. The only thing that's walking under the Sun to go from the bus will be too hot towards no shady places. The Canyon itself is small, walls of about 30 meters high, along the bottom of the flowing stream, but a lot of stones to help you move. We don't sweat and soaked my feet, because water was plentiful, and it covers all the stones. But come down to beautiful places. It is no more than 10 minutes from the beginning of the steep rocks on the sides of the Canyon. Reached the entrance to the great, unlocked them to will. Canyon is beautiful, especially if you are a photographer and shoot with a tripod and RAV-format. You can inject imagery more vivid shades. Expected course, more something like Antelope Canyon in the States. But alas. Even less impressive Canyon Canyon Uzundzha in Crimea. Not to mention the Grand Canyon of Crimea. Generally Cyprus in terms of natural attractions is inferior to the Crimea in the ratio of 1 to 100. And maybe more. But if you're already in Cyprus, it is necessary to be sure, this is one of the main attractions. ))

  • The nature trail is about 2 hours (1+1 linear), and you will need trekking shoes. There is a bit of climbing on the stones by the river (we almost reached the end of the river but we had to stop becau...  more »

  • Loved every minute at Avakas Gorge. I was my in walking gear but had knee length shorts and t-shirt on. In mid august I should have known better and put insert repellent on, but I didn't and received bits. Even so it doesn't stop me doing all again to enjoy it's magnificent views.
  • Beautiful. Bring water and a sense of adventure. Great gorge walk.didnt complete the whole thing but as far as I went the scenery is amazing including the suspended rock above the gorge after an earthquake.
  • Very nice and refreshing place. The trail is long enough to rest from a bussy city beaches. Web spent more than 2 hours on the trail.
  • This place is amaaaazing! I went there in early April. You can make it from Paphos by tacking the bus to Coral bay to the end stop, and then a bus to Agios Giorgios. From there there is a 40 mind walk left. Be aware that in April-November buses are more frequent and have a different schedule from the rest of the year. It's definitely worth to do the whole walk. The end is an amazing valley surrounded by grassy hills and some nice benches. Definitely take walking shoes with ankle support, water, a snak, and be ready to use your hands. It's not difficult but sometimes the path it not obvious. If that becomes the case just keep going and climbing upstream. I think we spend maybe 2-3 hours on our way up and then 1.5 hours coming down. Beautiful day trip!
  • This gorge is pretty impressive! We went there late in the afternoon which is the best time in my opinion, as the sun sits a bit lower, so it is less warm and the light is generally prettier for photos. There is no facilities for water in case you get thirsty, so I would advise to take your own water with you, as there is a 30 minute walk to the interesting bits. It is possible to drive quite close by car, but not every car would cope with the terrain, so keep that in mind. That gorge is really long, but after a while it gets quite dark and harder to walk, so it is up to you to decide how far you will take it. All in all it is a very interesting location and quite impressive to see!
