Caledonia falls

Some weeks ago we visited the Caledonian waterfalls, a famous scenery trail that many people local and tourists visit it. Caledonia Waterfalls are located near in the village of Platres in Cyprus. It is a beautiful waterfall located in Mount Troodos in Cyprus and is surrounded by forest. It is very popular especially in summer when it offers a cool and shady retreat from the powerful midday sun. The Trail is around 3.5km usually takes 2 hours of walking to go through it. The trail is split into two parts, before and after the waterfall. Some areas of the trails are not easy, and it is unsuitable for people not in good health. Here are some photos:
