Overview of Caledonia Falls
Caledonia Waterfalls are located in Platres village in Troodos. This beautiful waterfall is one of the highest located in Cyprus and is surrounded by forest and it is most popular in summer, when it offers a cool and shady retreat from the powerful midday sun.
The trail has a length of 3 km and can be divided into 2 parts, the higher one that leads to the waterfalls, and the lower one, from the waterfalls to Platres. The route might be difficult due to the sudden changes in gradient, but it is quite easy with decent shoes. The route is suitable for adults in good fitness levels. Unsuitable for very young children. If you do not wish to take the long nature walk path there is an easy access by foot straight to the main waterfall (about 20 minutes walk) from Aedonion road, by the trout farm in Pano Platres.
On the route you will observe many species of the local flora. Relax and enjoy the natural sound of the wind on the tree leaves and the sweet bird singing. It is worth noting that the name Caledonia Falls originates from the swallow birds singing during spring and summer evenings.
