The horses will carry our luggage to a local mountain shelter, where we will stay overnight. The first 3 km will take us on relatively flat terrain and through the forest. Later, we will cross a river and start climbing (8.5 km) toward the shelter – our final destination for today. Most of the ascent will take place in the forest. But around 7th km, we will reach the first clearing offering a magnificent view of the valley below. Overnight in tents or a shelter.
