Just gaze around Cyprus mountains was an excellent experience. It is strange that only tourists visit - locals seem not to appreciate the beauties of the island. Check it out. Worth it.

Kind of an anti climatic ending. We reached a distinctly unremarkable end to the road near the military base. We had about 3 minutes of the view before the fog rolled in and blanketed everything, until we could barely see our own car parked a...More

Even though some people mentioned that the top is closed due to military areas, most of the locals do drive to the top and you can park right outside of the military base (there is a wider road) and then walk either around the military...More

The highest point on all of Cyprus, not the ‘real’ Mount Olympus, but still really, really high, and giving great views across the island. The ski-lift is exhilarating and fun, and adds a bit extra to the last bit of the trip – and saves...More
