Route Description

Climbing to the mountain hut using this route is very pleasant, because the hut can be reached in 1.30 – 2 hours from the town. The villages of Lavci and Bukovo are in situated in distance of 2-3 kilometers from the town. From the village of Lavci the route goes up through the meadows and pine/beech forest from place to place. Approximately in the middle of the route the climber can rest and enjoy in the Zabov Kladenec site that offers a water spring surrounded by wonderful beech forest. Just after the site the route goes through the grassy areas having a variable mixture of grasses (the most remarkable are ferns). When this grassy area is passed, the mountain hut appears in close distance, situated between the rare trees and the view is enhanced with the Neolica summit and neighboring peaks. On the other side (to the north) the visitor can enjoy a magnificent view on the Pelagonia valley and the distant mountain peaks of the Nidze and Jakupica mountains.
