біля Lazaniás, Eparchía Lefkosías (Cyprus)
Leaving Lazania with its old houses and streets, the path goes down to the bottom of a valley and then up the other side to the Machairas monastery. The subsequent path heads towards a radar "golf ball" over some rocky ground, before turning off down to the Kionia picnic site. A scenic path follows down a gorge and then along a ridge to the Profitis Ilias picnic site with its adjoining monastery, no longer in use. Continuing along the trail, the E4 touches the edge of Lythrodontas; I diverted to visit the centre of this village for a coffee and to pick up supplies.
A little way after the village I took an E4 option that climbs up to a summit giving excellent views. The E4 route I had obtained from my research was then disrupted by some earth moving operations close to a military area. I followed an alternative track which is recorded in this GPS trail which led me into an area where they were exercising with large miltary vehicles. While I was not stopped by the soldiers (I was careful not to photograph anything), a subsequent sign indicated that parts of the E4 had been diverted. I have used waymarks to show where I believe the diversion to be. Ploughed fields and the villages of Delikipos and Kornos followed before I climbed through scrub to the Stavrovouni monastery.
