From Machairas Monastery the route heads west passing through the small villages of Lazanias and Gouri, where it turns south to Farmakas. From Farmakas it heads southwest, descending towards the main Lefkosia (Nicosia) - Palaichori road, with Palaichori dam to the left. From there the road turns left to go through Apliki, climbing steadily for 5 kilometres until it reaches Palaichori itself.
