At aprox. one hour drive south from Skopje, you reach the Patishka Reka village. From there, you have a several hiking paths towards the mountains around. Me and two friends of mine took one path and we hiked for about two and a half hours and we reached a frozen waterfall. :)

The mosque in the village (where the population is Muslim):



The mosque is under construction, it doesn't look bad:



A little bit outside the village:



Small mountain stream flows next to the road:



Looking back:



Looking at the right direction:

-little sunshine on the other side of the valley-



-after a while the sky cleared up-



-a neighboring mountain-



-we are hiking in the snow-





-we've reached a small peak-



-the view from up there-



that's all for now, folks

Few days ago I took a trip from Skopje to the village of Zletovo, in the east of the country. I was with a group of people that were planing to climb a mountain peak and visit some caves there.

For start, some "on the road photos":

The entire trip (sorry for the Cyrillic map):



Starting the trip early in the morning:



After the Miladinovci pay toll (10 km from Skopje), at the interchange between few state highways:



On the Miladinovci-Stip highway:





Then on the Stip-Kochani expressway:



















max. speed 110 km/h



And then on the Krupishte-Zletovo national road that was under construction:



It will be continued, folks :)

So, like I said in the previous post, I went with a group of people to hike on a mountain... We left our vehicles on the side of the road and started walking towards the mountain:









This place is known by the many caves in the rocky parts. Some of those caves were used by monks as cells for contemplation...







...like this small one, for example:



There used to be frescoes painted on the walls, but they are gone now.

We continued to hike towards the peak on the local mountain, at height of 1.200 meters...









On the way we've passed by another cave that was used as a cell by the Saint Gabriel of Lesnovo. This one had few frescoes painted on its walls



The view from the top of the mountain:



From up there you can see the Lesnovo monastery bellow:





And the city of Probishtip:



To be continued...​

The Byzantine church is under reconstruction / revitalization project:







Just a peak inside (it's forbidden to enter with a photo camera):



The candle shop in the monastery:



On the way back to our cars:



The view from up the road to the monastery on the fields and villages bellow:





That was all for now, folks!

This weekend I went with few friends on a hiking tour on the mountain Plačkovica, in the eastern part of the country. We were sleeping at this mountain lodge, Dzumaja...



Next to the lodge is the hotel complex Bel Kamen (White Stone), named after one of the peaks, closed due the covid-19 situation:



The first day was cloudy and rainy, so we took a more "hiking" type of a tour, following a dirt road that lead us to a small peak.



Some of the views:





The dirt road continues towards the small peak:













TO BE CONTINUED...

The next day the weather was better and we had a walk along the mountain stream Lumia, and then we started climbing the mountain towards the peak Lisets... Lovely sights along the way.
