Guide Book Text

This walk uses the 614, 615 and 618 buses.

The 07:40 bus 614 from Karavella takes you to Koili (pronounced Kili).

The walk starts with excellent views towards Troodos. Soon the views are towards the west coast. The walk drops from 635 metres to sea level with only 118 metres of uphill walking.

The route starts on little lanes heading roughly SE and soon crosses the main road used by the bus. A diversion of few paces, SE, along the main road gives a fine view east, free of power lines and other obstructions.

Now head SW and start descending. The lanes dwindle to 4x4 tracks and finally down to a narrow winding footpath that drops quickly to Agios Neophytos Monastery. This is a fairly standard mountain path with a slight risk of vertigo. Regular mountain walkers will be fine and the path was in good repair and not blocked by bushes. The last few paces were the worst where you risk tripping over a cat's cradle of irrigation and water supply pipes.

The route down is now on 2 km of wide road but it's not too bad as there's little traffic and the views are good. Soon you turn off north and cross the ravine to enter Tala. The route crosses the square.

The next leg to Kissonerga uses quiet lanes and passes through attractive orchards and fields. After Kissonerga, head south and then roughly west to the coast. At the coast road, you could catch the frequent 615 bus.

The downloadable tracklog uses the coast path to travel further south. At an unlikely left turn, head inland to a delightful rocky garden with eucalyptus trees. Here there were anemones, cillas, orchids, asphodels and cyclamen (February 11th). Sadly the inviting path continues up to a fly-tipping zone before reaching the coast road near Lidl. Here the downloadable tracklog ends. Of course you could walk all the way back to the harbour, inland or using the coastal path, or head inland to Karavella bus station to complete the circuit.
