Itinerary description

The path goes through a thick forest for most part, up until arriving to the foot of the very steep part of the mountain. There is an exposed scrambling part (the last two pictures) followed by a steep hike to the top with occasional scrambling. There are two peaks to visit, one has installed chain to assist reaching it. There were many groups with guides using ropes to secure themselves on the scrambling part.
