We did trails 7 (up) and 3 + 5 (down). The path is quite overgrown in the beginning and very steep for several hundreds of meters, so be prepared for a challenge. At times it is more than a climb than a hike, but nonetheless...More

We were nervous having heard mixed reviews buts it's very simple! Definitely worth it. Simple to navigate from the town centre. Towards MARDI, then head to the 'English cottage' and along the rd, you'll come to a junction and head toward Camelia apartments. Along the...More

Those are quite difficult trails, better to dont go there without preparation such as passing other trails.

The start of trail 7 is indeed a bit difficult to find, but if you pass the Mardi center on your left and continue a bit uphill you'll find the signs. The beginning of trail 7 is a bit overgrown, and you pass some local...More
