Ascent Trip Report

Not an easy one to get there:)
First - you need visa to Belarus (probably most of nations do).
Once you arrive to Minsk you will need a rented car or taxi. This would be the most convenient option as the peak is located approx. 40 km of Minsk and there is no frequent local transport. The peak is located in a very small village - Skirmuntova. The taxi driver will not know where it is so print a map or explain him in Russian:)
So basically, you should head into the direction of Dzierzynsk (city of Dzierzynsk) - be careful as the city of Dzierzynsk is in Belarsuan Dzierzynsk Gorad and the peak is Dzierzynska Gora.

I asked my driver several times whether he knows the way and he confirmed but then he took me to Dzierzynsk gorad (city) instead of Gora (the peak)...

The map printed from google maps would be helpfull.

Once you get to Skirmuntova (in winter it could be not that easy) you need to follow the "main" road until you get to clearly mareked parking place - there is a big blue sign in local language and in English. From the parking place it is a 3 minutes walk.

Other interesting places nearby - Castle of Mir and Palac of Niesviz. Both on UNESCO world herotage list.
