Nice hike over part of Artemis trail and ski piste to the fence of the military base at the top. It was interesting to go there while snowing and after that going to a beach in the afternoon.
Fog, cold and rain / snow. Not what we expected :)
Wonderful vision of top of Cyprus after a snowfall (that might indeed happen!) Alas, one has to renounce to the very last few meters due to military radar on the very top of the peak. Hopefully, one day the mountain will be freed like some tops in central europe during the cold war that are now clean again.
The summit, spoilt by a British military installation, is a bit of an anti-climax. Tommy go home please, the colonial days are over.
The actual summit is a bit ruined by occupying soldiers, but the paths on the upper slopes are really nice, and views of the entire island are spectacular.
Nice hike with family over part of Artemis trail and ski piste to the fence of the radome at the top.
Walked trough the beautiful Troodos Mountains / Woods towards Olympos Mountain. The actual summit is off limits because it is a military ground for both the Cypriot and English Military.
Great views from just under the summit.
my friends dad took us winter camping for the first time ever. I was around 15/16 years old. he brought external packs from the Kmart for us to use. we packed a 6 pack of Coke and tons of candy. After suffering for 3 nights, we went home. Since then, i cant wait until the next trip to "suffer" again. thanks Mr Taylor
We climbed Mount Olympus as part of our hike from Larnaca in the south east to Polis in the north west. There was 1-2 feet of snow on the top, however, practically no snow for the most part of the trail up there. We camped at maybe 1500m, so the night was a bit chilly.
