Paphos akamas avakas


Avakas gorge

Cyprus Avakas gorge

The hike up through the

Avakas Gorge

on the Akamas peninsular in Cyprus is a stunning and rewarding journey, once committed, the only way back, is a return through the Gorge or completing the GPS track. There is no short cut. The hike follows a stream bed up through the Gorge with the limestone canyon sides as narrow as 3 to 4 metres in places, scrambling and climbing over rocks, scree slopes and boulders for about 4 km. After the climb out of the Gorge, there is a good 10 km hike back, following the rim of the canyon on the dirt road from Kato Arodes to Lara. There are many fantastic viewpoints to the sea and back to the wild and beautiful Cyprus countryside. When you arrive at the dirt coast road near Lara Bay, turn left and there is a 1.5 km walk back to the start point.

Enjoy Avakas gorge....
