Important Information

  • May and June is the time of the year when we have rainy days, so please be ready for it. Your guide will provide you with rain gear or other clothing if needed! In May there is always snow and ice in the last part of the hike, so depending on the conditions we act! The lift - 2 seated chairlift costs 25levs per person (2ways) and is not operating every day in May, so we either start the hike from bottom or take special trucks that take us to the upper level for 25-30levs per person. June, July,August,September the lift is operating everyday except every monday morning. Please note that lunch is not included, but will will have enough time for a snack or lunch. There is a hut that sells snacks,beverages and meals too. Say Hi to Ogy! There is no ATM nearby and not always good signal for card readers,so please have 25levs for the lift and some for snacks too!
