Walk starts at a fresh water spring. The water is collected into an aqueduct and flows down through a lush green valley. This is a rare green valley with one of the few annual springs in North Cyprus. There are many aquatic and wetland plants growing along the aqueduct. The narrow winding trail follows the water course down the valley mostly shaded by tall pine trees. At the end of the aqueduct there is a big water tank to collect the water where it is used for a centuries old olive orchard. There are about 2000 olive trees with 400 of them over 500 years of age. Some of the oldest monumental olive trees are 800 – 900 years old and still bearing edible fruits. There is a cave near the orchard and a few ruins. The return of the walk is on a dirt track cut into the bank of a valley full of pine trees.
