Cyprus Passion

In the center of Cyprus lies the heart of nature, Troodos Mountains. The highest point in the mountain range is Mount Olympus which is found at 1952 meters. Although Troodos is in the center of Cyprus it mostly ranges toward the western side of the island.

Many of the oldest trees in the world are found in Troodos area. The Troodos forest is full of many varieties of trees, flora and fauna, but also many nature hikes, treks and trails to explore. During winter there is snow and activities like skiing and snowboarding and then during the summer there are hikes, picnic areas and even waterfalls to help stay cool.

There are also agro tourism places to stay a few days to give yourself a chance to see as much as possible. These mountains are a Cypriots retreat in the hot summer months and during winter it becomes a place to go and relax and have fun in the snow.

The most interesting fact about Troodos mountains is that they are known worldwide due to its geology and what is found in the earth. Apparently there is Ophiolite in this area which scientist can use to research and they do so without having to go into the sea. Another interesting fact about the mountains here are that Troodos houses 1 of the 5 most copper rich areas found worldwide.

So you see these mountains are not only rich in history but also in nature and what it has to offer everyone!
