We walk in uninhabited Xeros Potamos Valley and visit a watermill, and possibly also Panagia tou Sinti Monastery.
Vouni Panagias at an elevation around 1,000 m adds variety to the trip. We walk through well-kept vineyards (changing colors through the seasons) and by peculiar rock formations and enjoy excellent vistas towards Ezousa Valley, Kannaviou manmade lake and Paphos Forest.
Initially we walk in Xeros Potamos Valley and visit at least one watermill, and possibly also Panagia tou Sinti Monastery. Xeros Potamos means 'Dry River' and indeed the river disappears for much of its route during the hot season. At the same time, it is pleasant to walk here also at this time as there are excellent attractions to see including Panagia tou Sinti Monastery, one or two watermills, rock formations with protected caves, alder trees along much of the river bed as well as brambles. We may be lucky and spot a couple of the last remaining vultures in Cyprus as they frequent this region.
Then we move towards Pano Panagia village. Vouni Panagias walking trail starts at Pano Panagia village and is found at a high elevation (between 800 and 1,100 m of elevation). We walk through vineyards (which change tremendously through the seasons) and enjoy excellent vistas towards Ezousa Valley, Kannaviou manmade lake and Paphos Forest.
