Exploring Paphos In The Rain - Part 1

White Water


Unfortunately, by the time I arrived, the flow of water had subsided somewhat.

Close Up


Mind you, it would be good fun to get down there. Imagine what it must be like to stand under a waterfall like that? Bloody cold though...

Towards Dora


Having visited Prastio Waterfall, I had to decide what to do next. I was tempted to head up to Troodos, to see some of the waterfalls there. But I also wanted to see what was happening at Trozena. From there I could go to Kelefos Bridge. After that, I would still have the option of Troodos, or I could go elsewhere.

Rainy Day


The weather was pretty poor en-route. I did stop a couple of times to take in the scenery.

A couple of years ago I had planned to use the route from Kouklia to Dora as part of our third road trip ebook. Unfortunately, I came across a sign along the way that showed me an off-road route to a monastery I like, so I ended up doing something completely different that day. The route was put on ice in favour of Pomos, which will now be the focus of our next publication. However, after that, I shall definitely be returning...

Winter Waterfalls

The winter rains are on us with a vengance now, which is good news for the reservoirs. It is fascinating to see once-dry areas become raging torrents, so we took our cameras out to see what nature had in store for us...

Winter Water Features

The Asprokremmos Dam is due to overflow any time now, and the vendors are already setting up stall in anticipation. For many people this will be the beginning and their end of their water-based sight-seeing tour. However, last year revealed that Paphos has a lot more to offer than just overflowing dams, so we decided to check up our personal favourite of last winter.

Trozena Waterfall

When we visited Trozena last May, we read about a mysterious waterfall. Mysterious because though we could see remnants of an old stream in a picnic area between the village and the church, there was no waterfall at all. But then it rained. A lot. And somebody said there was a waterfall at Trozena. So we went and had a look. If you see one water feature after all the rains, you should make sure it is this one. It is spectacular...
