    There are different options to climb this peak.
    I suggest to climb it from Kazanite and the return back to Vihren hut throught Kabata
    There are number of reasons for that:
    1) If you climb in reverse order than you can skip Koncheto because of exhaustion and I think that Koncheto is a place that you should visit!
    2) The way through Kazanite is steeper and is more inconvenient for descent (the knees!)
    3) I'm sure I'm missing some reasons
    Be sure that in the summer you have at least 2 liters of water because there is no water on the road and the sun shines.Warning: Be aware that the weather can change dramatically in seconds!You can find Edelweiss in Kazanite.You should park you car next to Vihren hut early in the morning (7a.m.). Later in the day the parking is full and the police will close the road (next to Baikusheva mura).

    It is advisable to descend on the north side and on the south side. The climb on the north side is partially insured with a steel cable and requires the use of the hands, but is not particularly difficult or exposed.

    Great hike. I don't know if it is still allowed to write a message with the stones below the summit ... 😁
