Karpasia donkeys are one of the most important symbols of the island with historical and cultural importance… Karpasia donkeys are so-called ‘real Cypriots’, there are approximately thousands of them, roam freely in an area of 130 square kilometers, called the National Park, between the village of Dipkarpaz and the Cape Apostolos Andreas.
Free donkeys, can be found in bulks especially around the Apostolos Andreas Monastery located at the south of Cape Apostolos Andreas.
Tourists and local travelers to Apostolos Andreas Monastery, one of the island's most tourist spots, do not neglect to take food for feeding the donkeys. For this reason, donkeys 'road cutting' has become a habit. Donkeys, who greet the tourists visiting the region, even though they are wild are awarded with food such as carob, cucumber, carrot and biscuits.
