Trozena Waterfall

Published 18th of January, 2019

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...

Flooded Picnic Area

First things first, if you don't know where Trozena is, you can have a look at our blog on Trozena. There will be a map there. Basically, you want to take the B6 from Paphos and turn left onto the F616 after the Asprokremmos Dam. Keep on that road all the way up the valley until you see the signpost to Trozena and Gerovasa. Use the map link at the bottom of the blog if you are unsure. We actually came from the Dora end, but either is suitable. You can see the waterfall without entering Trozena. However, if you want to explore the village but are unsure about driving down those narrow Trozena roads, just park at the top of the hill, by the abandoned house.

Booty Territory

We had been here before so knew where we were going. We wanted to head to the church first. On the way we passed this picnic spot, which was now under water.

Not Too Deep

The water is not actually very deep here and we drove through it without any hassle. What surprised me though, is how calm it is. I would have expected a stronger current.

A Stronger Current

Here's the reason why it was so calm. Most of the water is flowing down here.

Abandoned Villages - Trozena

If you've driven over the iron bridge which lies just beyond the abandoned village of Gerovasa, near the outskirts of Paphos Forest, then you will also have driven past the abandoned village of Trozena. Unless you are very observant, you won't have noticed it though, as it is barely visible from the road. It is worth taking a detour to explore the ruins, as these photos will hopefully show...

Abandoned Villages - Souskiou

It's time to return once more to the Diarizos Valley, which lies on the border of Paphos and Limassol. Before Easter we had been exploring the abandoned villages and sleepy hamlets, and I want to show some more of the pictures we took, before the approaching summer heat makes them unrecognisable. So on this blog we shall visit Souskiou. Easy to miss as you drive up the valley, it is nevertheless one of the largest abandoned villages you will likely meet on your travels in Cyprus.

Abandoned Villages - Maronas

Last saturday my wife and I were in Paphos with a couple of hours to kill. So we decided to take a trip up the Diarizos Valley. Being on the Paphos / Limassol border, this valley is on the edge of the Paphos Life radar. However, it has a wealth of sites to visit, as you shall see over the coming weeks. Our specific destination was the abandoned village of Gerovasa. There is a fascinating bridge near to it, and we visited the village itself a few years ago, to do a geocache. However, on our way up the valley, we spotted some ramshackle buildings on the other side of the valley, and decided to take a detour...

Abandoned Villages - Prastio

The Diarizos Valley really is the gift that keeps on giving. This is the fourth abandoned village we've visited recently. However, this one is a bit special, as it is an abandoned village that is truly abandoned. To get to it, you have to leave the safety of your car, and wade through shoulder-high thistles and grasses. Is it worth the journey? You decide...

Fasoula

Fasoula is nestled in the Diarizos Valley, between the abandoned villages of Souskiou and Maronas. We visited it in the Spring time, but have saved the blog for now, so you can remember how green Cyprus was just a few months ago, as you sit by the pool relaxing in the summer heat...
