Climbing Notes

Here are some notes from an American traveler who climbed Korab in 2006:

"Korab especially has some special requirements – it is in a controlled military zone, and is only accessible on a regular basis once a year, when they have a group hike to observe Macedonian Independence Day, which is September 8. They have about 1000 people – I didn’t meet any other Americans! There were a whole lot of friendly people, though, all on or near the summit at the same time."

Bet: If we reach the summit,there is a 360 panorama view at the top and no other people around. I will get naked. Said and done (2013-07-19). Photo by Louise Ekroth.
