The Forestry Department has posted photographs of and from the observation post at Madari which at around 1600 metres is Cyprus’ second highest peak.

The Forestry Department relies on a series of observation posts to protect the forests from fire.

“The observation and monitoring of forest areas for the existence of smoke or fire is achieved through the operation of a network of observation positions, which are located in high strategic areas of  the forests and which are manned during the summer period with experienced personnel,” it said.

And it added: You can enjoy a beautiful route, by walking the Madari circular trail. But make sure to respect the environment:  do not leave any garbage and of course, be particularly careful not to accidentially start any fires.
