Caledonia Waterfalls

Caledonia Waterfalls

If you like not too demanding, but not too short hikes in the wooded countryside combined with the soothing sound of running water, which is quite rare in Cyprus, then head to the southern slopes of Troodos. Here you'll come across the 12-metre high cascading Caledonia Waterfall, one of the highest in Cyprus.

The waterfall was discovered in the 19th century by an expedition of excursionists from Scotland and, struck by its resemblance to Scottish waterfalls, named it after the mountain on the border between Scotland and England.

A signposted footpath leads from the village of Pano Platres, from where it climbs quite steeply into the hills. After 2.5km, however, you will reach the falls, from where you can follow other trails further into the woods and mountains or return.

Pano Platres is ideally reached by car, it is 105 km from Larnaca and 60 km from Paphos. From Limassol (Lemesos), there is a bus line 62 that comes here several times a day.
