Explore the scenic Lefkara manmade lake and wander in famous lace producing Lefkara
This trip combines some of the best cultural heritage of Cyprus with walking at one of the most scenic lakes on the island.
From Larnaca first we head to the lake for our walk. We leave the car by the dam and walk upto four km (each way) around the lake enjoying glorious view of the lake, the open spaces and the numerous hills by the forest. Though the elevation is relatively low (ranging between 350 and 450 m) we see many of the bushes and trees that are typical of Cyprus forests (at higher elevation) on Troodos mountains (eg Golden oaks).
We then ascend by car to picturesque stone-built Pano Lefkara village, the prime home of famous Lefkaritika lace. We will explore the medieval village of Lefkara through some of its very narrow streets, possibly visit at least one of its churches and will have the chance to pause for Cyprus coffee or refreshments.
From Larnaca (or Nicosia) we head northwest (south) initially to the scenic manmade Lefkara lake. After a relatively short walk (the walk is linear and we return on the same dirt road, so travellers can customise the length) we travel uphill to picturesque Pano Lefkara village. On our return, provided we have time and travelers are interested, we may stop at Unesco World Heritage Choirokitia neolithic site.
