w pobliżu Lysos, Eparchía Páfou (Cyprus)
Beginning from the village of Lysos, it passes the abandoned village of Melandra, before climbing into the pine forest of the Troodos mountains. At the camp and picnic site of Stavros tis Psokas have a look at the Mouflon sheep in an enclosure, as you are unlikely to see these animals in the wild. After climbing to the peak of Tripylos for its expansive views you walk down into Cedar Valley with its rare Cyprus cedars. Continuing through the pine forest, contouring around steep sided mountain slopes on forest tracks, you arrive at the Kykkos Monastery, a popular tourist stop with a restaurant and various stalls. Slightly off the trail are two ancient bridges on a nature trail worth a diversion. In the relatively dry country of Cyprus the Kaledonian Waterfall is a welcome sight and a popular walk for more active tourists. The nearby village of Troodos has all the tourist amenities. Continuing on roads, tracks and footpaths the track passes some ancient monasteries with old frescos on their walls, also some old villages such as Fikardou that are also worth a visit.
I have walked this track aiming to follow the E4 as best I can, it is marked by yellow and black diamonds.
