Ascent Trip Report

Popular tourist site (10 coachloads Sat pm!), who it seems generally don't bother with the little scramble (not exposed) up onto the highest outcrop (GPS N35.31265° E33.27965°, 729m). Easy border crossing from Larnaca, N Cyprus car insurance still 20 Euros (have the right money, he didn't have change, luckily I had a 20). I somehow missed the ticket booth (on the R just inside the entrance) but it's just a few Euro to enter the castle.

For a more detailed description see Petter Bjorstad's report.

Then fine scenic drive along the ridge for Selvili.
