May 3 . Kudhes - Qeparo - Porto Palermo
3 h / 9 km / ↑450m ↓450m / Moderate
A short drive, the second half of which covers a bumpy track through olive groves, leads us into the hinterland to the village of Kudhes. From the only road of the village we climb to colorful gardens and through steep streets, passing by donkeys and mules, to the core of the village. In the bar we are welcomed by Turkish coffee and conversation with locals. The path leads along bright oleander bushes and over terraces to a pass with a lovely view of the old upper village of Qeparo. High above the sea we walk through empty cobbled alleyways in which time seems to have stood still. In a shady tavern we enjoy a light lunch, before continuing our descent towards the sea.
