4 Days Chogoria Sirimon Route
OVERVIEW

The Chogoria route, which we consider the most beautiful climb to the summit area, is arguably the most famous among hikers due to its rich scenic views. It is the driest route up the mountain and the walk beside the Gorges Valley is truly spectacular. Once on the Sirimon Road, one passes beautiful forest tracks and completes the journey through the mountains.
