Tokhni is a picturesque little village situated in the south-eastern region of Cyprus. Set in the foothills of the Troodoos Mountains, the village is located almost midway between the larger cities of Larnaca and Limassol. It is also called Yeni Taskent or New Tokhni and has historical significance because of an attack by Greek soldiers on the village in the 1970s. The attack destroyed the village, and led to its subsequent reconstruction.
The climate in this part of Cyprus is Mediterranean in nature. The average annual temperature is around 20°C, and in the long summers, it can rise up to 40°C. Winters are typically mild, and owing to Tokhni’s geographical location, it is sunny throughout the year.
This friendly village has a known population of about 400 people.
