A well organised trip by @peaktrip this time took place in village of Veshalla starting point and traveling by van from Tetovo to the village which is a mountain village located on the road which links Tetovo- Kodra e Diellit (Popova Sapka) and it is only 15km away..


We started to hike on the early morning hours and needed 2h 30 min to complete the trail with a group of 60 people, we laughed and hiked all together till the last breath remained, we chilled a little bit with a beautiful lake view.

The way to the village was a little bit of longer because we already knew that traditional lunch was waiting for us, the last energy left was reserved for the delicious meal prepared from the locals.

Such a great day for everybody, repeat please :D
