The climate of the Troodos Mountain range (Cyprus)
Who wants to escape from the heat in the coastal regions of Cyprus can seek cooling in the Troodos mountain range. With altitudes up to 1,951 meters (Mount Olympis) it is much cooler here than in the lower areas. Differences in temperatures with other places on Cyprus are 8-12 degrees Celsius on average. During the winter subzero temperatures are not uncommon. In the highest areas there is often enough snowfall to go skiing. Cyprus will probably never become a popular winter sports destination, but it offers something different from the popular winter sports destinations. The mountains are also ideal for hikers and cyclists. Many routes are situated on the leeward side, because of the lower temperatures it is very pleasant to go walking or cycling in the Troodos mountain range. The mountain range is also much wetter than other areas on Cyprus. Most places on Cyprus only get 100 millimeters of annual precipitation, most of which falls during the winter. The Troodos mountain range gets 800-900 millimeters of annual precipitation. Even in June, July and August there is 10-15 millimeters of precipitation. Still not much but it says something about the unique climatological position of the mountains.
