Hiking the Avakas Gorge

 Taking advantage of a bright Spring morning we started off  St. Patrick's day with a  drive out to the Akamas region , we parked up and hiked to The Avakas Gorge.










The Gorge lies North of Paphos at the begining of the Akamas peninsula, there is a decent path down to the entrance of the Gorge but then the path runs out and you have to carefully pick a trail amongst the rocks that lie on the floor and cross the stream numerous times.













The views inside the Gorge are impressive with the cliff walls rising to 150m. As you progress along the gorge the going gets a bit tricky and you have to scramble over some of the lager boulders and climb over felled trees.
