A short walk through the countryside around Kallepia

Published 11th of February, 2019

Now that we are getting the occasional dry day again we thought it time we started our selection of blogs on walks in and around the countryside of Paphos. For our first excursion we are visiting the village of Kallepia, situated near the Ezousa Valley and Minthis Hills Golf Course.

The Map

This walk is fairly short at 3.4 Miles / 5.5 Kilometers. It is however fairly hilly. You will be walking on decent tracks that might get a little muddy after rain but in general are well maintained.

The walk starts at a little church on the outskirts of Kallepia. You can drive to this church in any car, or alternatively you can leave the car in Kallepia and walk, if you fancy a slightly longer yomp.

As with any trip out in Cyprus, especially in the hotter months, make sure you have plenty of fluids with you. Some to take with you on the walk, and some for when you return.

The Route To The Church

Whether on car or on foot, from Kallepia, you will need to take the road in this direction, and follow it as it goes to the right of those houses. Kallepia is a bit of a maze, so if you are unsure about getting here, be sure to look at the map. I have added a route showing the easiest way to drive through Kallepia without getting lost.

Ignore Turnings

On the way, you will come to a couple of junctions. This one here is signposted Salomis Road.

Go Straight

Ignore all the junctions and continue on the main road.

Keep Right
