Nestled in the Troodos mountains are some of the most beautiful hill resorts of the island with its traditional and picturesque villages, lovely churches and peaceful monasteries. Troodos mountain range raises its highest peak to 1951m above sea level and stretches across most of the western part of Cyprus. This tranquil region provides a cool refuge for long walks in the summer. Covered in snow in the winter, it offers an opportunity for skiing and other winter sports.
Ten Byzantine churches from Troodos are listed under UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Besides the Machairas region to the east and the Troodos region surrounding the tallest peak of Mount Olympus, there are four other distinct regions with its own character and charm. These regions are the Pitsilia area east of Mount Olympus, the Solea Valley to the north, the Marathasa Valley to the west and the Krassochoria region to the south.
