Trip Description

This is a very nice mountain range: it is easily accessible by public transport, its ridge provides refreshing views, it is safe for novice hikers. Some country motor cyclists love to spend a day around the mountain. You can easily find the footprint of motor bikes on the ridge. But there is one warning, this trail is totally unsheltered. Under burning summer sun, this trail could be demanding.
This trail has one deficiency: when you're about to finish the trail, you will find a cooking oil factory nearby giving off very awful smell.
