Caledonia Falls is one of several scenic waterfalls in the Troodos Mountains. It is located north of the village of Platres and above Millomeris waterfall.

The road to the waterfall goes up, which will have a great impact on the time of the route back and forth. Taking into account all the stops for photos and rest, the road to the waterfall took about 40 minutes, back – 20. Be sure to have comfortable shoes and an optional bottle of water, and something to snack on.

The trail originates from the parking lot, next to the fish farm and tavern. By the way, at the entrance the local grandfather treated us to his fruit, and on the way back we bought from him fragrant village honey (12 degrees for 1l).

At the stand it is worth paying attention to the map and a small set of recommendations for tourists. Also on it there are photos and descriptions of some types of plants, including endemics, which will meet on the route (pay attention to the plates with names along the way).

In the beginning the noise of the river was heard, but the water itself could not be seen – only some pipes. Not immediately, but still the river appeared. Throughout the road, on the river there are mini waterfalls and baths.

In addition to the stones, the road was complicated by the large winding roots of trees.

Some stones can be slippery, so it is best not to rush and look carefully under your feet.

The path crosses the river several times, and in these places there are quite reliable bridges.

On the way there are benches where you can relax and enjoy nature.

The Caledonia Falls is 13 metres high, just 2 metres smaller than Millomerys. There is also a small backwater where daredevils can freshen up in the icy water.

And in sunny weather you can see a small rainbow.
