It's not a distance from Normafa where you can park your car and have an easy walk to the top station of Zugligeti Libego. From there you need to climb a bit but it is worth for the view.

After a lovely chair-lift ride through the autumnal sunshine we had a shirt but steep walk to the tower. There is a choice of route, either the road (less steep) or through the woodland path and steps. The reward for reaching the top is a...More

You might be attracted by the Beautiful sceneries and got away with taking pics and selfies. Beware of pickpockets which worked in a group of three or more and were disguised as 'ordinary tourists' taking selfies and pics !!! Just Beware !!!

There are multiple modes of transport to reach here, but the best is walking. While you keep climbing the hill, different elevations keep unearthing different views. It is a real pleasure to walk in the small forest leading to the top. One can not compare...More
