“Dangerous decent”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

The view from the top from Vihren hut is well worth the steep climb, but take care: if you want to decent the North side of the mountain, you better know what you're getting yourself into: it is very steep on rough terrain with a lot of loose stones, gravel and sharp rocks and there is not really a path. If you slip, you might really get into trouble. Only attemps this when you have at least some experience with moutain walking and with appropriate shoes. Good chance of snow in June and earlier.

Great place to get away from it all and get lost in the white outs, great views and quaint little mountain huts all over to grab a coffee and warm up a bit .

“great hiking”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

been there many times, crossing between huts, great view and great hiking, recommend staying in local huts - that way you dont have to carry food, drink or tents - nice for a week hike!
