Northwest of Xyliatos village, up on Troodos Mountains in the Nicosia district and less than 1000 m / 0.62 mi from the village center, lies a huge circular crater; a remnant of the mine that was once there from 1954 to 1990. The crater is located right where the ore export point used to be. Following an initiative of the local Community Council, the mine has been filled with rainwater. The result is phenomenal. A peculiar lake dominates now the surrounding mountains.

Kayaking in Little Wenatchee River, Wenatchee, Washington USA
Little Wenatchee River runs through the Wenatcee National Forest and gives into the Wenatchee Lake. The Kayak adventure starts from Fall Creek towards Lake Creek Campground. The run is 3.5 mi/5.6 km long and with a class 4 and in some sections 5 difficulty for normal flows.
The river is great for intermediate and advanced kayak enthusiasts, because during spring, when the water is high, the run starts off with a short relaxing warm up that leads to an 8 ft/2.4 m strong vertical drop and the action begins. There are a lot of fun rapids, a series of holes and waves , small eddy’s and canyons.
Prepare to get wet in fresh, crystal clear cold water, take your gear with you or plan an organized river trip and enjoy a fantastic white water kayaking experience into the wild nature of Cascades.
