On the last Sunday of March every year the Kalkanlı Monument Olive Trees Walk takes place with the aim of promoting olive trees, their importance to the country and the Turkish Cypriots cultural heritage.

This year the 5th Monument Olive Tree Walk took place thanks to the event organised by the Kalkanlı Monument Olive Tree Protection Association, Güzelyurt Municipality, Middle Eastern Technical University’s North Cyprus Campus, Kalkanlı Mukhtar and the Kalkanlı Cooperation and Solidarity Association.

The walk began from the Kalkanlı Picnic ground and those who participated were informed regarding the historical artefacts, orchids and monument olive trees in the region.

Speaking during the event the head of the Kalkanlı Monument Olive Tree Protection Association Osman Kaş said that despite all difficulties they had been organising the event for the past five years and touched upon the importance of spring water, orchids and historical artefacts in the region.

The ODTÜ North Cyprus Campus assistant rector Professor Dr. Ali Yıldırım for his part said there was a need to increase sentiment in order for the monument olive trees to be promoted, protect and become a part of world heritage.

The Güzelyurt Mayor Mahmut Özçınar noted that the festival was developing with every passing year and said that they aimed to hold more events that would increase sentiment for the monument olive trees.
