Saint Nicholas’ Ways – Day walks
Walking routes on the ancient roads linking the churches of Masikytos:
Below we describe eight day-walks on the old roads of the Masikytosmountains. For most, you need either to be dropped at a start point or collected at the end of the walk – there are two routes which requires both. Alternatively, you can camp out at Zeytin, at Karabel or at Belen /ŞahinTepesi and plan your walks to be a continuous circuit.
Note these points:
Bring this leaflet / map, a compass or GPS and a picnic.
Use walking poles, bring a sunhat and suncream and a small first-aid kit.
Either bring plenty of water or use sterilizing tablets and well-water. Most wells have their own bucket and rope, but you could bring a metal can and a length of light cord.
Supplies in this area are very limited – although the shepherds will help out with flatbread, cheese or yoghurt, there are no shops.
There are no local buses but passing cars may give you a lift.
