20th October 2018 (Saturday) Gozo Annual Walk- G09 - Mgarr - Nadur - Nuffara Hill – Ghajnsielem
Circular Walk : No Transport Provided
Meeting Point : Mgarr Gozo Ferry Terminal
Meeting Time : 10.15am
Walk Starts : 10.30am
Bus(es) : Nil

We start from the Gozo Ferry Terminal and go up a narrow path to the village of Ghajnsielem. We will walk through the periphery streets of the village until we reach the Qala–Xewkija road, then we change to country lanes. We go up to Nadur at It-Tomba, taking us to the Kenuna Tower. We then walk through Nadur streets, until the tip of Tad-Duru area and down a steep way to the valley into Wied il-Hanaq.
After a short break we circumvent the hill known as In–Nuffara (the scarecrow). From ta’ Xhajma side we walk to the foot of the hill. Since the hill is steep, we will give the option to all participants not to climb the hill and wait for us in the shade under the trees. The hill has a flat top and was once a Bronze Age settlement. We will see some of the remaining 5000 year old silos. From up there one can see practically all Gozo under oneself.

After descending the hill, we will proceed to Ta’ Bordin area, between Xaghra and Xewkija, until we reach Ghajnsielem and back to the Ferry. Time: 4.30 hours Rating: Medium walk

We park our cars near the Chapel of Our Lady of Itria at Bingemma Gap. While waiting we can enjoy the lovely panoramic view and the Victoria Lines which are at their most majestic here.
We start the walk by walking downhill towards Mgarr but at the bottom of the hill, just before we reach the village of Bingemma, we turn right and walk up a gradual incline with lovely panoramic views of our left and the Victoria Lines on our right. When we arrive near the ex-Strickland winery we turn left and walk in a south-westerly direction for a long way with fertile fields always in our view as we look towards Zebbiegh and Mgarr. Another left turn and we walk up another gradual incline all the way up to Bingemma chapel and our cars.
