Is it possible to hike to the ancient goldmines near Kinira that was re-discovered 1979? Is it possible to enter any of them?

    The ancient gold mines of Kinira are on the top of the mountain close to the antennas for TV. There is a dirt road that takes you there but it is not easy to find the entrances although there are five-six of them. One good cyclist with a good mountain bike could go up there using the dirt road. If you find the entrance you have to be properly equipped, helmet, good light and rope to make sure that you will not have a problem. It is better if you go there with a friend particularly one that knows where the mines are.
