Cyprus is such a dry and hot country, especially in summer. So when you find a hidden gem like Avakas Gorge you'll remember it for a lifetime! It starts in the heat, but as you follow the stream inland the trail narrows and the walls rise around you. The temperature drops, making for pleasant respite, and at times you'll even need to get your shoes a little bit wet as you explore deeper into the gorge. It's beautiful in there, with the green mosses and suspended boulders making for some great photos. It's only a half hour drive from Paphos, so see for yourself how amazing this gorge really is!

Durch die Avakas-Schlucht führt einer der definitiv schönsten Wanderwege Zyperns. Er ist etwa 2,5 Kilometer lang, verläuft durch satte Vegetation und wird begleitet von einem Bach, der normalerweise ganzjährig Wasser führt. Festes Schuhwerk ist sehr zu empfehlen und Sonnenschutz ebenfalls, obwohl es in der schattigen Schlucht teilweise auch ein paar Grad kühler wird, was im Hochsommer ja wirklich angenehm sein kann. Nicht ganz unanstrengend, aber wer einigermaßen fit ist und sich von spannenden Landschaften beeindrucken lässt, sollte den Ausflug auf jeden Fall machen.
